The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas are celebrating Black History Month with a new mural wall at Galleria Dallas.

Neighbors Majorie and Michelle Burrell, both from Troop 165, are featured on the wall alongside other Girl Scout members.

Michelle is in charge of all cookie sales for more than 40 troops. The mother-daughter duo have led Lake Highlands Troop 165 for the past 34 years.

We wrote about Marjorie and Troop 1906, which includes Lake Highlands and Richardson, in 1992 when the troop was just getting started.

Marjorie, the founder of Troop 165, says it was a surprise to be featured along others who have let an impact on their organization.

The mural wall was unveiled Jan. 27 and will be up until the end of February.

“I knew it was going to be a mural,” Marjorie says. “But just to see it, it was a big surprise. It was really good to see yourself with other Girl Scouts.”

Some of the other members honored on the wall include Zara Jones, a Gold Award Girl Scout, and Grandmother of Juneteenth Opal Lee. Marjorie said the unveiling day was her first time meeting Lee.

“That was the first time I met her on Thursday when they unveiled the mural,” she says. “I had read a lot about the things that she was doing on television and the newspaper.”

The Galleria Dallas will also host teams of Girl Scouts near Sephora to run cookie booths each weekend in February.

Galleria Dallas is located at 13350 Dallas Parkway.
