As the Girl Scouts of the USA celebrates its 100th anniversary, we’re finding out which tvnewsers once were Scouts themselves.
The girl pictured at right? Yup, it’s Katie Couric, who tells ABC News online of having competed for the ‘Most Creative Dish’ award at a troop cookout. Despite the steak sandwich she whipped up, she lost out, “much to my chagrin”.
The lesson she learned? “Sometimes life isn’t fair. It can be tougher to swallow than a steak sandwich, but that’s the way the hoagie roll crumbles.”
PBS’ Judy Woodruff also was a Scout, for about nine years. “It broadened my horizons in an important way,” she says, “and I’ll always be grateful to the Girl Scouts for that.”
