Aventine Hill in the Community: Helping Girls Become Leaders
Aventine Hill is proud to be one of the Top Workplaces in San Antonio, thanks in large part to our people, who not only contribute to the workplace but to the community as well. One of Aventine Hill’s CFO Partners, Jeannie Frazier, is also the Board Chair of Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas council. This council covers 21 counties and includes around 18,500 girl members and 5,500 adult volunteers.
Jeannie enjoys working with other volunteers on the board to make the council strong and inclusive, providing the scouting experience to as many girls as possible. She chose to join the Girl Scout organization because she is a person who is driven by mission and she was drawn to and believes in the Girl Scout mission:
Jeannie likes how the mission is focused on improving the world and said, “I hope that by serving this organization, I can be a small part of making this happen.”
She recently created a patch that was presented to the girls on Saturday, October 8th during their “Patch Party!” According to Jeannie, the meaning behind the patch is to “explain to girls that life is likely to send them to places in the world they can't imagine [and] if they will do their best to become part of that community, put down roots, grow strong, and bloom, they can work toward making that part of the world a better place.” Jeannie decided on the phrase “Bloom Where You’re Planted” because it expresses this sentiment perfectly.
