Famous Formers Luncheon
Each Girl Scout membership year, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast recognizes local Girl Scout alums who are leaders in their field. These women serve as role models for girls today – the future leaders of tomorrow. This year, GSCCC will also honor a company that exemplifies our mission and supports girls with the Corporate Champion of the Year award.

At the luncheon, guests will hear from Dr. Patricia Turner of The Norfolk 17, the first group of African American students to integrate into Norfolk Public Schools. Dr. Turner, a Girl Scout alum, will share how her life-altering experiences in her youth made her the G.I.R.L. champion she is today.
Brand New Award!
This year for the first time ever, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast will be honoring a company with The Corporate G.I.R.L. Champion of the Year award during the Girl Scout Famous Former Luncheon.
This honor will be awarded to a company that continues to offer to their employees and community exposure to the Girl Scouts’ four pillars: Outdoors, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), Living Skills and Entrepreneurship. Like every Girl Scout, the Corporate Champion must be diverse in how it is making the world a better place.
To be nominated, companies must:
- Have made efforts to better the environment of the community around them
- Have made efforts towards gender parity in STEM fields (does not need to be a STEM focused company to qualify)
- Have made efforts to provide their employees learning, training and education opportunities to continue to hone employee’s skills
- Have made efforts to recruit and retain women in leadership roles
