Hutchison and Girl Scouts Heart of the South presented the first ever Strong GIRL Fest in October.
Girls and their families from around the Mid-South were invited to take part in interactive activities across the Hutchison campus that celebrated and empowered girls of all ages. Girls got the opportunity to try their hand at robotics and engineering clinics, worm dissections, TV newscasting, art projects, and expressing their dreams as madam president. There were soccer, lacrosse, basketball, and volleyball clinics, chances to perform in the dance studio and theater, urban farm activities, and arts and crafts projects. The festival was rounded out with food, music, face-painting, and fun.
We were proud to host all the STRONG girls that we know make up our great Memphis community!
