Champion for Girls: Philanthropist Spotlight

donor highlight

Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout!  Emily Kittle Morrison grew up right here in Tucson and was a Girl Scout in our Council.  After graduating from Catalina High School she attended the University of Denver where she started her over 50-year involvement with the Delta Gamma sorority, whose mission is to develop a sisterhood built on a commitment to making the world better through not only service, but also a deep appreciation for each individual.  Sound familiar?  

Emily continues to live the Girl Scout Promise and Law through her active involvement with many organizations including Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona (she recently helped organize a “Hard Hat Tour” for Girl Scout alumnae to learn more about our new “A Place for Girls,” an expansion of our Tucson campus which is currently under construction), Junior League, Ronald McDonald House, the Catalina High School Foundation, and the Tucson Alumnae Penhellenic Council of which she is the immediate past president.  She has also worked tirelessly for children in foster care, refugee students, and homeless youth. 

Because of her dedication to making the world a better place, this summer Emily received national recognition by being awarded Delta Gamma’s Catherine Stuart Schmoker Principled Leadership Award, which honors a Delta Gamma Alumna who has made, and continues to make, a significant leadership contribution to her community.  As part of her award, Emily was given the opportunity to have the Delta Gamma Foundation make a charitable contribution to the non-profit of her choice –  we were humbled and excited to be the recipients of this very generous gift!  So many young Girl Scouts will benefit from her generosity. 

Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona is proud to have Emily as a sister, alumna, and supporter.  Congratulations, Emily, on your well-deserved honor.  We are truly blessed and grateful for your support and continued involvement with Girl Scouts!
