Kathleen Peters, Pinellas County Commissioner, is a Champion for Girls Inc. Pinellas

"I think every single girl needs a Champion and I can tell you it is really an honor and a privilege. I think every girl needs the support of the community to help them rise up and be successful."

- Kathleen Peters

Patricia Clynes, Chief Financial Officer for The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art is a Champion for Girls Inc. Pinellas

"Growing up I was blessed to have a working professional mom who was my role model and now that I have a daughter, I want to be that same great example for her. While raising my daughter I realized that unfortunately not all girls have the same experience as I did and I started looking for local organizations that supported this cause and this is how I found Girls Inc. Their mission and vision immediately touched my heart and so I became involved because I also want to be a part of changing these girls' lives. I want to inspire them to shine, to be strong, smart and bold. I want them to know that it's okay for them to be a little loud, because their voices are important."

- Patricia Clynes
