Forrest Burdette is proud to sponsor a Girl Scout Troop affiliated with the Black Diamond Council of the Girl Scouts of America. The Girl Scout mission is building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts do a lot more than just sell cookies! They are the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, offering every girl a chance to do something amazing.

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
I will do my best to be:
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do.
And to respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
