Several Shelby County legislators recently earned honorary spots on a Girl Scout troop created to celebrate the organization’s centennial anniversary.
State Sen. Cam Ward, R-Alabaster, and Reps. Mary Sue McClurkin, R-Indian Springs, Kurt Wallace, R-Maplesville, and April Weaver, R-Brierfield, joined several other state legislators as they were named to Girl Scout honorary Troop 1912 on June 2.
The troop was named in honor of girl scouting’s upcoming 100-year anniversary.
The members of the troop were named to the organization to serve as “the voice for girls in the legislature.
“We’re excited to have a diverse group representing Alabama’s girls,” said Trish Coghlan, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama.
Ward said he was excited to be named an honorary member of the longtime organization, which serves more than 15,000 girls in Alabama ages 5-17.
“They do some great stuff,” Ward said. “I was honored to be named a member of that troop. That is a great organization.”
