Farmingdale, NJ (August 15, 2022) For the month of September, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore [GSJS] will celebrate Amazing Woman Grace Hopper. An unsung hero of American History, Grace went on to become one of the world’s first computer scientists and the Navy’s few female Rear Admirals.
Every month, GSJS celebrates a new amazing woman icon and runs a self-guided program where registered Girl Scouts and Adults will receive the program and a patch featuring that month's amazing woman. This September 22, 2022 will feature Grace Hopper and is made possible in support by GSJS sponsor, Commvault.
In addition, sponsors like Commvault help to support GSJS’s after-school outreach programs; girls can participate as a Girl Scout in a troop in areas where no traditional troops exist. Many of these girls receive financial assistance and might not otherwise have the means to participate in programs such as this Amazing Women Series.
Learn about these groundbreaking women's accomplishments and find inspiration for becoming an amazing woman yourself! To register visit gsfun.org/gracehopper.
