On Saturday, December 11, fifty-four Girl Scouts came to the Hoover Presidential Library to learn about what life was like for Lou Henry Hoover–former First Lady and President of Girl Scouts of the USA. Even a snowstorm couldn’t dampen their enthusiasm for participating in activities: exploring the many countries that the Hoovers traveled to, First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative, and tours of the Hoover Galleries. The girls and adults enjoyed healthy snacks while earning their Lou Henry Hoover patch.

How interesting! We don’t often hear about Lou Henry Hoover. I’d love to see what the patch looks like.

I just learned on Wikipedia that Lou Henry Hoover learned Chinese, and that she’s the “only First Lady” to date to speak an Asian language. What an interesting fact!

The Girl Scouts had a wonderful time at the Hoover Museum! This was a great opportunity for our area girls. The patch can be viewed at the following location:

This sounds awesome! I was a GS for 10 years, all the way through earning my Gold Award, and Lou Henry Hoover sounds like exactly the type of leader I’d have loved- a world-traveling, educated outdoorswoman. I’d love to learn more about her; she sounds like a wonderfully strong foremother for today’s girls to look up to. Thanks for featuring her!
