In her remarks, Debbie said:

“Let your Girl Scout Law, with its focus on honesty, fairness, consideration, courage, responsibility and respect, be a continuous touchstone for you long after you have packed away your (Girl Scout) sash and badges, reminding yourself of your choice to live according to these principles will guide you through the difficult situations and tough choices that will challenge you.”
