Alice Marshall: Our Pioneer

Posted: Sep 22, 2011

Intrigue for the “wild west” and a love of horses…

These are the things that brought 23-year-old Alice Lord Marshall from her home in East Orange, New Jersey to Phoenix in 1919. A “Pioneer,” as she once called herself, she was never one to shy away from new experiences, and handled her arrival with fearlessness. She immediately steeped herself into the community, and became involved in a local Episcopalian church—Trinity Cathedral—located on Roosevelt and Central.  

It was here, in a rather ordinary encounter that one of the most significant moments of Arizona Girl Scouts history occurred.  Click on the link below the image to learn more about Alice Marshall.

The Journey to Arizona: How Girl Scouting made it to the Grand Canyon State

Posted: Sep 08, 2011

“The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.”
-- Juliette Gordon Low

As we enter the 100th year anniversary of Girl Scouting, these words, spoken by the founder of the Girl Scouts, carry great significance.  Without the vision and determination of history-makers like Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouting may never have made it to Arizona.

So, how did Girl Scouting reach the Grand Canyon State?  Click the link below the picture to find out!
