Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee Host Third Annual “Outside the Box” Event

Outside the box

Help support Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee (GSMIDTN) by having desserts before dinner at Outside the Box. On February 27, 2018, GSMIDTN will host Outside the Box, a dessert tasting featuring unique renditions of Girl Scout Cookies crafted by local restaurateurs. All proceeds will go towards helping girls in Middle Tennessee achieve the confidence and skills to empower themselves, solve problems in their community and make the world a better place.

The third annual event will honor Deborah Y. Faulkner, chief of the Franklin Police Department, and will take place at Nissan North America, Inc. in Franklin, Tenn. beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Through Girl Scouting, girls learn business ethics, goal setting, problem solving, leadership and other practical skills that they will use in the classroom, on the job and throughout life.
Chief Faulkner leads the 160 men and women who make up the Franklin Police Department, the ninth largest in the state of Tennessee. She has served in leadership positions on several organizational boards including Fifty Forward, YWCA, Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee, Catholic Charities and Goodwill.

“Deb’s accomplishments speak to her successful leadership,” said GSMIDTN President and CEO Agenia Clark. “But it is also through her actions over the years, her service to others and her dedication to making her community and the world a better place that make her a role model to girls across Middle Tennessee. We are fortunate to honor her at our event.”
Proceeds from Outside the Box will directly benefit girls in Middle Tennessee by way of programs, summer camps and volunteer resources.
