RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The leader of Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia is stepping down.

Chief executive officer Viola O. Baskerville will retire on Friday. She has served as CEO since 2013.

Molly Fuller has been named by the organization’s board to succeed Baskerville, effective May 18. Fuller is former CEO of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast.

The organization said Monday in a news release that a scholarship fund has been established in honor of Baskerville’s retirement. The fund will help underserved girls participate in scouting.
