Dolly Parton Now a Girl Scout

(WVLT) - We all know Dolly Parton as a country music singer, songwriter, movie star, amusement park owner and philanthropist.

But now, she is going to have a new label... a girl scout.

On Friday, the Girl Scouts of Tanasi named her a lifetime member during a presentation attended by more than a thousand Girl Scouts.

Parton also honored 28 Scouts who have achieved the gold award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts.

She said that while she was never a Girl Scout herself, she always wanted to be.
