Loretta Graham has joined Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois as its new Chief Executive Officer.
“I am extremely honored to have been selected as the New CEO of the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois," Graham said in a news release this week. "I am boundlessly grateful to the Board of Directors who empowered me to lead Girl Scouting, and I can hardly keep in my impatience to get started.”
Loretta joined Girl Scouts in 1991, beginning her career with roles in membership and marketing, before returning to South Carolina more than nine years ago. She lived in North Dakota for more than 25 years.
“In Girl Scouting, we reach out to our communities for support and in turn we are challenged to be a service to those communities. In the Girl Scout Law, we pledge: To be honest and fair, courageous, strong, responsible, and to make the world a better place," Graham said in the release. "I will hold true to this pledge."
Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is a high-capacity Girl Scout council, serving about 11,300 girls and engaging 4,550 adult volunteers in Southern Illinois.
