Girl Scouts Not Worried By Boy Scouts Move

TAMPA (970 WFLA) -- The head of the local Girl Scouts organization says her group isn't worried about the Boy Scouts of America's decision to allow girls to become Cub Scouts and try for the rank of Eagle Scout. 

Jessica Muroff is CEO of the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, which serves eight counties. She says their membership rolls are growing. The West Central Florida chapter serves about 19-thousand girl scouts. 

Muroff says her council knows what they offer girls, and they'll continue to focus on that mission. "We know what we offer our girls... our focus is on girls and it will always be." 

Muroff says the Girl Scouts allow all girls to try new things, travel, and take risks in a safe environment. She insists no other organization comes close to providing a variety of opportunities for all girls.
