Columbus Girl Scouts visit the Georgia State Capitol

Columbus Girl Scouts visit the Georgia State Capitol

ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) - Local girl scouts joining hundreds of others at the state capitol for Girl Scout day at the capitol.

We caught up with two of those young ladies at the local Girl Scout office in Columbus today as they helping load Girl Scout cookies.

While at the capitol this week they learned more about the legislative process and engaged legislators in conversation about naming an iconic bridge in Savannah after Juliette Gordon Low. Low was a Savannah native who founded Girl Scouts there in 1912.

Their hard work seems to have paid off. Next month a bill will be introduced and voted on to rename the bridge after Low.

Girl Scout AnsleyJankiwicz tells us why this is important to them.

"Since its bridge that connects people to others it makes it like girl scouts," says Jankiwicz.

Girl Scouts took interest in naming Savannah's bridge after Low after the Savannah City Council passed a resolution proposing that the state of Georgia change its name.
