Laura Hinkebein Retires After 27 Years of Service

GSMH’s Chief Development Officer, Laura Hinkebein, will retire on October 8, 2010. Please join us in wishing her the best as she and her husband retire to Arkansas, where she says they plan to “do all those things we say we will do when we have time.”

Words from Laura:

I am honored to have worked for an organization that supports and advocates for children and provides experiences for girls to grow into caring, confident, and strong women.  What an important way to spend your life’s work!

Thank you to the many donors who have supported the Girl Scout program over the years.  How rewarding it is to see that they understand the importance of girls and women as leaders and make them a philanthropic priority.  Donors, your trust and investment in Girl Scouting have paid off.  Your financial gifts have created generations of girl leaders who are making the world a better place.

I have met so many wonderful volunteers, donors, and staff members over my 27 years with the organization — all working together to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Special thanks to my mentors, Denise Stewart and Jennifer M. Orban.  These Chief Executive Officers epitomize the qualities we want for “our girls” –  smart, strong, kind, supportive and encouraging women.

“Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold.”  Thank you to my many silver and gold Girl Scout friends.
