Strickland seizes ‘golden’ opportunity with Girl Scouts

For Kelli Strickland, Executive Director of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, Girl Scouting has not been just a hobby, but a way of life. Strickland was a Girl Scout from fifth grade through high school and worked as a counselor at scout camps well into her mid-20s. During that time, she earned the Gold Award — the highest and most prestigious award that a female can earn in the Girl Scout organization. Strickland will be a guest speaker at the Girl Scouts of Distinction event at the Brown County Central Library on Thursday, May 3 at 6 p.m. The event celebrates the accomplishments of the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award Girl Scouts, and volunteers receiving Adult Awards.
