Congratulations to the 2019 National Volunteer Awardees!

GSSEM honored 56 recipients of GSUSA National Volunteer Awards on Saturday, March 16 at the San Marino Club in Troy. More than 70 community partners received GSSEM’s new award, Friend of Girl Scouting award, for their ongoing support of GSSEM programs and events. 

Two longtime volunteers, Joan Lyczkowski and Mary Lou Behrendt, received special recognitions for their 45 and 50 years of service, respectively. Both women expressed their dedication to girls and Girl Scouting. It was quite a moving celebration of their accomplishments. 

Now is a great time to start thinking about recognizing the special Girl Scout volunteer in your life!  There are so many fantastic ways to say thanks to your favorite volunteer with special notes or gifts, but to make it official you can nominate them for one of GSUSA’s Volunteer National Awards!  The portal is now open for nominations for the 2020 Volunteer National Awards

Congratulations to all of you and thank you for all that you do!
