The Girl Scouts-Wilderness Road Council has named Ginny Eager as of fund development director. A native of eastern Kentucky, Eager joins the council after 20 years of service as executive director of Forward in the Fifth, a nonprofit organization working to improve schools in eastern and southern Kentucky.
"Eager's strong ties to eastern and central Kentucky are a good match with our goal of expanding the reach and funding of Girl Scouts throughout the 57 county service area of the Wilderness Road Council," said executive director Anne Weston.
Currently, the council serves more than 25,000 girls and spends $153 per girl to offer programs, camps and travel opportunities.
"I'm very excited to be working for Girl Scouts-Wilderness Road Council," said Eager. "I think it is very important to help young women gain the skills necessary to be successful at life. I believe Girl Scouts is one of the best ways to do that. By working to help young women gain important skills, we are ultimately building a better world."
