About Beth Winters
The Beth Winters Memorial Scholarship Beth Winters, daughter of Joyce and George Termini and the late Charles Winters, exemplified the highest ideals of Girl Scouting as reflected in the Girl Scout Promise and Law. On August 26, 1995, Beth suffered an untimely death in a car accident at the age of 26.

As a young woman, Beth moved through life with grace, tenacity and a soaring spirit. The Beth Winters Scholarship Fund, endowed by Beth’s family and friends, captures that spirit by annually recognizing an Ambassador Girl Scout of high ideals. Since March 1996, sixteen such women have been so honored.
