About Mr. & Mrs. Shults
Mr. Eugene A. Shults created the Betty L. Shults Scholarship Endowment in August of 2005 in memory of his late wife Betty, a long time supporter of Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada (formerly Frontier Council). Betty joined Girl Scouts as a volunteer for her daughter Cassandra’s troop. Her 30-year history with the council saw Betty in numerous volunteer positions such as: leader, campership chair, product sales chair, cookie chair, troop committee member, trainer, and Council Board President. Her life long commitment to the girls of Southern Nevada is a true testament to the impact Girl Scouting has on our community.
