American Heritage Girls receives national media attention

Cincinnati, OH (January 18, 2012) - The New Year has ushered increased media exposure for American Heritage Girls (AHG). The Blaze, a national news organization featured AHG on January 2, 2012 calling American Heritage Girls “A Christ-centered Alternative to Girl Scouts.”

A follow up television interview with Founder and Director Patti Garibay appeared Friday, January 6 at 5 pm EST on GBTV www.gbtv.com. The Blaze Editors Scott Baker and Billy Hallowell will discuss the benefits of American Heritage Girls on Glenn Beck’s new internet television.

The Blaze featured AHG in a series of stories investigating the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). The story begins with this summary:

“Last week, the Blaze’s report about the Girl Scouts of the USA‘s “MEdia” book and its encouragement that young girls visit Media Matters to clear up “misinformation,” gained a great deal of attention. The story, though, wasn’t the first time in recent memory that the Girl Scouts have come under fire. In October, we reported about the Girl Scouts of Colorado‘s decision to let a little boy into the organization’s fold. And, on a grander scale, there have been countless accusations of liberal bias waged against the group. Some have felt so passionate about the organization’s alleged leftist allegiances that they have launched alternative groups for families seeking more traditional scouting experiences. Take, for instance, American Heritage Girls (AHG), which describes itself as, “a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.” AHG was founded back in 1995 in West Chester, Ohio, by a group of parents who were looking for a Christ-centered alternative to some of the increasingly-secular organizations that had been setup for young girls (i.e. the Girl Scouts).” AHG Executive Director and Founder, Patti Garibay was interviewed by The Blaze and shared her personal journey as a former Girl Scout leader and how she came to launch the AHG ministry. “Garibay explained that, prior to leaving, the Girl Scouts had become part of her personal ministry, but the organization’s new proclamation — one that no longer definitively defined God as a central figure in its pledge — caused her great pause. So, she and other concerned parents sat around the kitchen table and planned AHG.”
