In the beautiful Riverside bungalow owned by Renee Hill, built originally as a blacksmith’s keep, amazing women from the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council discuss a huge part of our council’s future: The Daisy Society, newly founded by Elizabeth Sutherland.

“The Daisy Society is important to me because it funds opportunities for girls to have experiences they might not have otherwise,” said Renee Hill, Assistant Superintendent for Riverside Unified School District.

Through the Daisy Society Program, Renee Hill was able to help middle and elementary school girls go to the Cal State San Bernardino GenCyber Camp for a week.  Forty girls from 5 schools were able to attend the camp with the Society’s help  and all of them were able to meet women with careers such as a judge, lawyer and an engineer!

Knea Hawley, Director of Fund Development and Alumnae Engagement, is so passionate about her job she was even able to persuade two more ladies to join on the spot at the Steering Meeting:  Judy Fuhrman, Staff Development Specialist for Riverside Unified School District, and Adela Flores Bertram a K6 Language Arts Specialist.

Ms. Ferman described her experiences as a Campfire Girl for ten years during her youth and says that she wants her community to have the same opportunities as she did through the Daisy Society.  Ms. Flores Bertram states that the reason she wanted to join the Daisy Society was because she notices that many girls want to try and experience something different in life, and she wants them to have the chance to be a leader in the Girl Scout community.
