Danielle Shockey was named the Girl Scouts new chief executive officer in January.

Her resume serving Hoosier children spans more than 20 years. Her trip to town focused on her goals for the organization as well as findings from a recent Girl Scout impact study.

"I hope that we can continue to find those niches of troop types that are needs for our girls in our communities and grow those,” Shockey explained. “There are already a lot of great things, I just hope to continue that tradition."

Some key findings from the Girl Scout impact study are included here, including grades, graduation rates and careers in STEM fields.
