Courtney Peters Joins Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois as Program Specialist

Courtney Peters has joined GSSI as a Program Specialist, filling the vacancy left by Erika Hankins, who has taken a position with Girl Scouts of Ohio Heartland. Courtney is a recent graduate from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Education and a minor in Psychology. She completed her senior internship with GSSI in the spring of 2016.

“I am so grateful that my internship led me to my job as a Program Specialist,” Peters said. “I have met so many amazing people through this organization and I look forward to planning exciting and eventful programs for Girl Scouts across southern Illinois.

Peters found a quote from Robert Baden-Powell, friend of Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low and founder of Boy Scouts, to be inspiring for her new role with GSSI: “The most worthwhile thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.”
