Resilient. Tenacious. Determined. Inspiring.
These are just a few words that describe Lise L. Luttgens, CEO of Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA). As we say thank-you to Lise when she retires this fall, we reflect on how her leadership the last 11 years has helped build a strong, passionate council that empowers 47,000 girls and over 25,000 adults.
Lise’s leadership exemplifies what it means to be a Girl Scout.
Girl Scouts is about giving girls the tools to be strong advocates.
Throughout her Girl Scout career, Lise has made it her mission to tell the stories of girls throughout Greater Los Angeles. A continuous advocate for girls in our council, Lise eats, sleeps, dreams, and breathes our mission. She leverages her personal connections and builds new relationships, always reminding herself and others, “We are here for the girls.”
Girl Scouts is about teaching girls to be compassionate leaders in their communities.
Year after year, Lise has dedicated herself to the Girl Scout Movement, participating in countless programs, conferences, events, girl experiences, and more. She’s always respected the time and devotion of our volunteers and knows their partnership and belief in our organization makes things possible.
Girl Scouts is about teaching girls to be unafraid to think big.
Lise’s vision for GSGLA for the past three years has focused the council on reaching girls from underserved communities to ensure that all girls have the chance to experience the impact of Girl Scouting. The legacy of this work, and so much more, will keep GSGLA respected locally and nationally for years to come.
