Thank You Fran Styles!

When Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts in 1912, women playing basketball would cover the gymnasium windows lest they shock an innocent passerby. Thankfully, those days are long gone, thanks to women pioneers in athletic, like longtime Girl Scout volunteer Fran Styles.

Fran was San Diego’s first woman athletic director. She competes in the national Senior Olympic games, bringing home medals in track, archery, and yes—basketball!

Countless San Diego-area girls and their leaders learned to hit the bulls-eye thanks to her. To honor her selfless dedication to Girl Scouts, the new Fran Styles Archery Range at our Balboa Campus will be named in her honor, Tuesday, June 15!
