Donor Spotlight

Westar Energy is investing in girls – tomorrow’s community leaders – with a $5,000 grant for the inaugural luncheon of the Juliette’s Pearls Leadership Society.

Liz Workman, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland CEO, accepted the Ignite-level sponsorship check from the Westar Energy Foundation, which is committed to investing in the education of tomorrow’s workforce, including youths’ academic performance, STEM education, and community development and diversity.

“We appreciate Westar Energy’s commitment to the community and investment in Kansas Girl Scouts,” Workman said. “Thanks to their support, more girls will have access to programming that helps them develop leadership skills, and builds their courage, confidence and character.”

The luncheon on Feb. 27, 2016, featuring former Kansas Senator Nancy Kassebaum Baker as the keynote speaker, is part of the Juliette's Pearls Leadership Society's efforts to raise funds and awareness for Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, ensuring girls across Kansas have a chance to participate in programs that help them thrive now and in the future.
