Jessie Matherne, a Girl Scout Junior from the Jefferson Parish town of Lafitte, had the top cookie sales in Girl Scouts Louisiana East for 2014, with 2,001 boxes sold.

Girl Scouts in the 23-parish jurisdiction sold more than 1 million boxes this year, with the per girl average increasing to 153 boxes. A total of 211 girls entered the regional Cookie Hall of Fame for selling 500 boxes or more, including 17 girls who sold more than 1,000 boxes.

Many of the Girl Scout super-sellers had attended the council’s Smart Cookie U event in January, where girls learned goal setting, marketing strategies, sales tips and other financial literacy skills, which are integral parts of the cookie program.

Participation in the cookie program helps pay for troop activities, trips and community service projects. Girls also received individual recognitions such as patches, T-shirts and basketballs.
