Girl Scout Emily shadowed Karen L. Evans, Vice President, Whiting Turner. Here is what Emily gained from her experience with Karen Evans, a day that began by touring various construction sites around Baltimore City.
After lunch we headed back to her office where she brought together a panel of women from various job positions. In talking with them I learned more about the detailed jobs that go into a construction company and that there is more to a job than working 9-5. We discussed a lot about my college career, my Gold Award, and more importantly, what being a Girl Scout means. More importantly, I learned what it means to be a distinguished woman. It means to not only be successful, but to be respected.

Each year five Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts are chosen to be a Shadow Girl to one of the Distinguished Women Honorees.
Shadow Girls spend a day with an honoree for an up-close look at how she manages her time, staff and family/community responsibilities. It’s a unique one-on-one, hands-on experience from which you can learn from women who are some of the best of their chosen professions.
