Germantown, Tennessee--September 25, 2018--Last week, Germantown Board of Education Chairman Betsy Landers was recognized by the Girl Scouts Heart of the South organization for being One Smart Cookie. The celebration honored seven women in the Mid-South for their outstanding contributions to the community. "By lifting them up, we are showing our girls what true leadership and character is all about, and we encourage our girls to lead by their example," stated the program guide from the event. Superintendent Jason Manuel recognized Ms. Landers in a speech, saying that "I couldn't think of an exemplar for young girls quite like Ms. Landers who serves on our school board, but also the National PTA Past President. We are so glad to have her represent Germantown and education advocates in this year's impressive list of Smart Cookies."
