Our council is proud to announce the newly elected Board Chair, Meredith Manning. Meredith is an Assistant Vice President and Sr. Deputy General Counsel with BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina. She has been a practicing South Carolina attorney for over 30 years, the last 20 within the BlueCross Law Department. Meredith is a 1982 graduate of Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia and a 1987 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law. After law school, she clerked for 2 years for a state court judge and then entered private practice with a local law firm for several years before joining BlueCross.
Keeping with our Girl Scout values of service, Meredith is also passionate about giving back to her community. She is a Sustaining Member of the Junior League of Columbia and has also served as board member and chairman of Sandhills School, a local non-profit for children with learning differences. Meredith joined our board of directors in 2016 and has served on the Governance and Finance Committees, and as Chairman of the Midlands Major Gifts Committee, part of the Council’s campaign for creation of the Cathy Novinger Girl Scouts Leadership Center.
We would like to thank Meredith for stepping up to lead like a Girl Scout, along with the rest of the board who give their time, treasure, and talent to the Girl Scout Mission.
