Local Girl Scouts to Spend Quality Time with President & Women Leaders at Advocate BroMenn Medical Center

NORMAL, ILL. -- Fourteen Girl Scouts from Troop 1584 (based out of Bloomington’s Debra T. Thomas Learning Center) will get to spend some quality time with five women leaders at Normal’s Advocate BroMenn Medical Center on Wednesday, March 26, from 1 pm – 3 pm.

The Scouts, ranging from kindergarteners to fifth graders will be split into groups of two or three and will spend time with the following hospital leaders:

Colleen Kannaday, president of Advocate BroMenn Medical Center & Advocate Eureka Hospital
Rev. Dr. Karrie Oertli, vice president of mission and spiritual care
Shelly Jimenez, RN, manager of critical care services
Kristen Peterson, RN, manager of progressive care and stroke program coordinator
Stacy Barclay, RN, manager of nursing operations

The Scouts will learn about the backgrounds of the leaders and will spend time with them in their work environments.

The goal of the afternoon is to educate and inspire the girls regarding the variety of leadership opportunities that are available to women.

Troop leader Nicole Thornton has led the girls for the past year. “Eighty-five percent of the troop is bilingual,” she said. “Many of the girls had never heard of Girl Scouts before, and neither had their parents.  Over time, I think the girls and their parents have realized that Girl Scouts is a great organization and it has afforded them many opportunities, along with new experiences that they would not have had if they were not a part of this giant ‘sisterhood.’”
