Gamma Sigma inspires leadership and sisterhood at Harlandale ISD

Harlandale ISD girls are learning the importance of leadership and sisterhood through the Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas Gamma Sigma Girls and Pearls program.

Dedicated to advocacy, college readiness and giving back to the community, the leadership development initiative combines the Girl Scout Leadership Experience with a sorority-like setting for teen girls.

Students from Harlandale Middle School, Leal Middle School, Kingsborough Middle School, Terrell Wells Middle School, Harlandale High School, McCollum High School and STEM Early College High School showed their commitment to Gamma Sigma Girls and Gamma Sigma Pearls at the annual Investiture Ceremony held on Nov. 15.

“The Gamma Sigma Girls and Pearls program is a unique leadership development program provided by Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas in partnership with Harlandale ISD, which has grown over the last five years,”   Harlandale ISD Assessment Coordinator Patricia Dauphine said. “The focus is on girls who may have a limited history of Girl Scouts in their family or community so that these girls get to experience the sorority type setting on their own campuses.”

During the Gamma Sigma Girls Investiture Ceremony, girls were awarded a Girl Scout Membership Pin as a symbol of their commitment and dedication to identifying causes they are passionate about, taking action within their community through service projects, and exploring career path and higher education opportunities.

“I am always proud to see our girls participate in this program and in the ceremony because I know the commitment it takes to tackle something new each year. Many of our girls also participate in athletics, Honor Society, band, and many other extracurricular activities, so making the time and putting in the effort to join with other girls for a common goal is really exceptional,” Dauphine concluded.
