Treats and Trophies for Top-Selling Girl Scouts

June 17, 2014

By Kelly Griffin, Product Sales Director

Drum roll please….. We have a new record!  During the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Sale, our top three sellers each sold at least 4,000 boxes of cookies.  Wow, Girl Scouts! Way to go!

2014Top_SellersGirl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines celebrated these top-selling Girl Scouts on Saturday, May 31, at Imagination Station in Wilson, NC.  Girls and their families gathered for a catered luncheon with council CEO Lisa Jones, and then enjoyed an afternoon of fun exploring the museum.

Xena G. from Cary, NC, placed first selling 4,750 boxes of cookies! Xena joined the Girl Scouts in 2006 and was our number two top seller in 2013.  In just one year, she increased her sales from 3,041 to 4,750 boxes; a 56% increase overall! She also led the council in the 2013 Fall Product Sale as our top two seller. Xena is a member of Girl Scout Cadette Troop #15 and is planning a trip to Australia and New Zealand in 2015 with the travel-based Girl Troop #7000.

Our Second Place seller is Girl Scout Brownie Emerson F. from Winterville, NC, with 4,005 boxes sold! She was the top seller in Pitt County during the 2013 sale and had her eye on being the top seller in the council for 2014. Once you meet Emerson, there’s no doubting her ability to reach a goal.  As her mother says, “She has no fear when it comes to selling cookies.” She is a future entrepreneur!

Trailing second place by only five boxes, Antonina Q. from Fayetteville, NC, is top seller number three.  Nina had an amazing increase during this year’s sale jumping to 4,000 boxes from 1,226 boxes in 2013; a 226% increase. What an amazing leap in sales!  Nina is a member of Girl Scout Troop #888 and has been involved with Girl Scouts since 2008.

Also honored at the event was Taylor W., top seller for Operation Cookie Drop.  Taylor sold the most for the council’s military support program of any Girl Scout this year at 733 boxes; an almost 100% increase in her sales for this program, and a 50% increase over last year’s record for Operation Cookie Drop. Needless to say we were blown away and wanted to honor her! And to add to her success, she placed fourth overall during this 2014 sale, with 3,803 boxes sold.

Congratulations to all of this year’s top sellers.  Way to go, Girl Scouts!


Girl Scouts Soar as Leaders

June 4, 2013

By Lisa Jones, Chief Executive Officer

Supporting girls’ health, wellness and leadership development is not only important to us at Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines; it is an essential part of our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

Over the last few weeks, I have had several opportunities to witness girls’ developing into our leaders of tomorrow.  I recently met with our IT2 Girl Advisory team ­­who shared with me their impressions about our Council’s strengths and opportunities from an older girl perspective.  Girls’ voices are important part of our mission.  The advisory team also provided feedback about creating an online forum where all girls and volunteers could share suggestions for consideration during our strategic planning process.

IMG_3286A very visible way to see our mission in action is through our Girl Scout Cookie Sale. Everyone knows about Girl Scout Cookies, but do they know what girls are really learning through the program? Not only are our Girl Scouts having fun selling cookies, they are learning how to set and achieve goals, manage money, work as a team, make sound decisions and provide great customer service.

Girl Scout Troops experienced of the rewards of philanthropy and community service, as they helped to deliver this year’s donation of 95,952 boxes to our Operation Cookie Drop sites. Those who attended the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base drop not only met female pilots, but also experienced the pilot’s seat first hand.

Three Girl Scouts in particular soared to new heights during the 2013 Cookie Sale.  Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines is pleased to announce Hailey of Albertson as the Overall Top Seller, with 3,100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies sold. Xena of Cary placed second with 3,041 boxes sold, and Taylor of Knightdale placed third with 2,800 boxes sold.

OverallTopSellers_Taylor_Hailey_XenaThis past Saturday, I had the pleasure of joining these top sellers and their families for a celebratory luncheon on the Bicentennial Terrace of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh.  I enjoyed the conversations I had with these growing leaders, and was impressed to hear what each girl valued most about the experience and how their accomplishments made them most proud.  I can easily envision each one with a future in sales, business management, or even CEO of Girl Scouts!

I am proud of all the Girl Scouts who helped make this year’s Cookie sale such a success.  It is truly an honor to witness girls developing the courage, confidence, and character to be both leaders today and in the future.
