That’s why Girl Scouts Heart of the South is hosting the third annual One Smart Cookie Celebration to celebrate women who make things happen in Greater Memphis.
This year’s honorees are women who demonstrate qualities of leadership in their professional, civic and service-oriented endeavors and will be recognized at our celebration dinner event on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at the Holiday Inn – University of Memphis.
