Back from the holiday season, and Sigma Gamma Rho has not wasted any time! Recently Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) have gotten together with one of the nation’s largest African American Sororities, which is Sigma Gamma Rho. This joint system was to “help help build awareness of careers in science, technology, and engineering among girls and parents in African-American communities.” SGR will be working with local Girl Scout councils all over the country. This will be aided by the funding from the National Science Foundation. This will all be through GSUSA’s Imagine Engineering initiativeand Sigma Gamma Rho’s initiative will be a focus on their sorority’s annual National Youth Symposium. “Girl Scouting and Sigma Gamma Rho have the same goal: to build the nation’s future leaders by helping girls dream big and accomplish much today,” GSUSA Chief Executive Officer Anna Maria Chávez said in a statement. “We are delighted to be part of this partnership to help girls do great things in critical fields such as science, technology, engineering and math.” “Response to Imagine Engineering has been terrific,” said Sigma Gamma Rho National President Bonita Herring. “We surveyed 250 girls who took part in the program, and more than two thirds of them said they now understood how ‘someone like me’ could become an engineer.” This is amazing news to our ears and we are proud of the partnering of such a great sorority and GSUSA!
