Our feature Friday this week is all about the girl members of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts Board of Directors. Ellie Strayer, Lynda Loucif, Ashley Rohall and Keanna Lamont will serve a one-year term on the board, learning about non-profit management and having a role in key decisions affecting the council. The girls came into the council’s Boston office to share ideas and provide feedback on programs for older girls with council staff including CEO Ruth N. Bramson.
