Over the years Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest has honored more
than 300 women who have distinguished themselves through their
leadership, extraordinary contributions to their community and, most
importantly, by exemplifying the Girl Scout mission as women of
courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
We hold two ceremonies each year in our council: one to honor women in
Southern New Mexico, and one for women in the Permian Basin area of
The proceeds from these events allow Girl Scouts of the Desert
Southwest to provide scholarships, the Girl Scout Leadership
Experience (GSLE), enhance our four priority program areas: Financial
Literacy, Healthy Living, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Math), and Outdoor Leadership, and support various Girl Scout
activities and programs for Girl Scouts throughout Southern New Mexico
and West Texas.
