Michael Wallis meets the Girl Scouts
Today I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Wallis, author of Route 66 (and one of the voices on "Cars" as I was told). One of our Girl Scout troops is working on a project that involves Route 66 and the Sapulpa museum. The opportunity arose to participate in an interview with Mr. Wallis on KTUL Channel 8, right here in Tulsa. He was so impressed with the girls! After spending an hour together, he asked Kathryn, "Is this typical of Girl Scouts?" She bragged on the quality of our girls - especially the ones who stay with Girl Scouting into their high school years - how they are amazingly dedicated, capable and strong young women who are going to be great leaders. Mr. Wallis had some ideas to help the girls continue their project, so I am looking forward to hearing how this story develops!
