Dianne Belk & Lawrence Calder

Dianne Belk

Dianne Belk grew up on the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta and had to sell eggs from one of her family's chickens to pay the one dollar Girl Scout annual dues.  She went on to earn the Curved Bar award and to become one of the first femal industrial engineers.  Dianne and her husband, Lawrence, now focus on their philanthropic passion of helping young girls reach their full potential.  They are the founders of the Juliette Gordon Low Society, which honors friends who choose to make Girl Scouts a beneficiary of their estate.  Learn more about Dianne.
