Joanne Crepeau Future Leaders Scholarship
Girl Scouts of Maine is dedicated to preparing girls for a lifetime of leadership—in their own life and in the world. As women, we face a number of unique challenges but we also have an unparalleled reach to make positive impacts and Girl Scouts is deeply committed to filing a pipeline of women leaders to make those impacts.
For graduating seniors who are about to embark on their adulthood journey, we hope you will keep your passion for issues that are important to you and make this passion part of your life long into the future.

A GOLD LEVEL SCHOLARSHIP is presented to this Ambassador Girl Scout from Scarborough who plans on pursing a B.S. degree in Premed at Penn State University. Harshini credits Girl Scouts with exposing her to many volunteer experiences in and outside her own community, including helping unhoused people and young hospital patients. Girl Scouts also has developed her leadership skills with planning activities and with younger Girl Scouts. Harshini sees a great need for women to “break the glass ceiling” and serve in top leadership positions to a more equitable numbers. She notes that 40% of all physicians and surgeons are women, but only 16% are deans at medical schools. She hopes to inspire young girls and women to reach their full potential. Her strong presentation earns Harshini the additional Jo Stevens Scholarship in addition to the Gold Level Future Leaders Scholarship.
