AgFirst's Griggs elected board chair for Girl Scouts of South Carolina - Mountains to Midlands
AgFirst Senior Vice President and General Counsel Frances Griggs was elected board chair for Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands for 2022. In addition, AgFirst recently donated $25,000 to support the organization’s efforts to prepare today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.
Griggs’ involvement, coupled with AgFirst’s financial support, helps advance the Girl Scouts’ mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. The organization serves more than 7,500 girls and adults in 22 counties in the state.
Griggs’ involvement with Girl Scouts began as a Brownie and developed into serving as a volunteer, co-leading a troop and eventually serving on the Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands board. Griggs believes in the Girl Scout mission because she’s seen how it transformed her life, her daughter’s and countless girls throughout the years.
“To have a name like AgFirst supporting Girl Scouts is huge in the community,” Griggs said. “Girl Scouts provides girls with leadership development and life skills, and to have the financial backing to be able to offer those programs that support that mission is critical.”
Located less than a mile from AgFirst is the Cathy Novinger Girl Scout Leadership Center, which provides innovative learning and leadership experiences for girls locally and statewide. The center creates opportunities for girls in a safe and welcoming environment.
AgFirst is proud to continue its support of Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands as it invests in girls statewide to enable them to discover their strengths, rise to meet new challenges and make their communities a better place.
