Girl Scouts members Eileen Cho (left) and Natalie Marr (right) were chosen out of more than 40 girls in Western Washington to attend the National Girl Scout Convention in Indianapolis, In., from Oct.29 to Nov. 2. While at the convention, the two MIHS juniors met the Girl Scouts National Board of Directors, Patricia Diaz Dennis (center), along with fellow scouts from across the country. The four-day convention included two days of leadership training and guest speakers such as actress Geena Davis. Both girls are members of Mercer Island troop 1069, led by Doreen Kindred and Charlie Czech. The girls had to pass an intense interview process to attend the national convention.
