Theresa Szczurek, CEO of Radish Systems and lifetime Girl Scout, received the Volunteer Service Award from Girl Scouts of Colorado for decades of service. Dr. Szczurek is an active member on the Zephyr Service Unit leadership team, which supports Girl Scout troops in the Boulder, CO area. A Girl Scout since fourth grade and a leader for two years in NJ and over 15 years in Colorado, she now is co-advisor of a Senior / Ambassador troop of high school students throughout Boulder County, especially focusing on helping scouts “Go Gold” to earn the highest award.
Szczurek said, “I love being a Girl Scout. Girl Scouts builds girls with courage, character, and confidence and prepares girls to be leaders. Over 64% percent of today’s women leaders in the United States in civic, corporate, political, and entrepreneurial arenas were once Girl Scouts including Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and many others.”
According to Inc. magazine , more than two thirds of the female members of Congress and an incredible 80% of women business owners were Girl Scouts.”
