The Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians will honor Carol Ferguson at this year’s north-area Virtual Trefoil Society Luncheon.
This event will take place on Aug. 27, via Zoom, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Each year, Trefoil Society luncheons are held in the north, central, and south areas of our Council to honor a woman who exemplifies a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker and Leader).
“I’m really humbled by being honored by this group,” Ferguson said. “I know a lot of the women who are members of the Trefoil Society and have an enormous amount of respect for them. I wish my scouting career had been longer, but I think I’ve always been an advocate for women’s rights and empowerment of women, and Girl Scouts do a wonderful job of that.”
When a girl becomes a Girl Scout, she receives a pin in the shape of a Trefoil, symbolizing her acceptance of the ethical leadership values she will learn. Members of the Trefoil Society commit to support Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians through generous annual financial support, so girls can discover their leadership potential and take action in their communities.
Carol’s community involvement included serving on the Board of Appalachian Girl Scout Council in Johnson City. She has served as the President of the United Way of Johnson City/Washington County, the Board of Directors for the Johnson City/Washington County Chamber of Commerce, and as President of the Johnson City Board of Realtors. Carol has served as President of Northeast State’s Foundation. She is presently serving on the Executive Board as the Scholarship Committee Chair for Northeast State and on the Johnson City/Washington County Health & Education Board.
