Homes in Motion Owner Speaks at Girl Scouts’ Techno Quest

Jagger’s Homes in Motion helps homeowners tackle the market-smart enhancements that make their home more enjoyable and also attract higher offers. Using the company’s unique “Money in Motion” seminar—a lesson on the financial realities of mortgage lending, debt management and home equity—Jagger equipped the young girls with practical skills for their future.
“We were very happy to have Homes in Motion participate and teach about real-world financial issues,” said Jennifer Carter, director of special programs for the Girl Scouts of North Carolina Coastal Pines. “We do Techno Quest because girls and females in general are underrepresented in the math, science, and technology fields. Having an event like this in an all-girl environment where they actually do projects with female professionals in these fields is very empowering for the girls.”
Techno Quest is an annual Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Plains technology event for girls ages 11-17. This year, approximately 180 girls attended Techno Quest on November 18 at Meredith College. Corporate participants included GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Nortel, Syngenta Biotechnology and other global leaders in the math, science and technology fields.
Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines, a merger of the Girl Scout Council of Coastal Carolina and Pines of Carolina Girl Scout Council serves more than 32,000 girl members and nearly 10,000 adult members in 41 central and eastern North Carolina counties.
