Volunteers are truly the cornerstone of Girl Scouting. There are so many wonderful people who give of their time and talents to enrich the lives of our girls. Every year at the Council’s Annual Meeting, we hold a very special awards ceremony to honor extraordinary volunteers and all that they have done for Girl Scouting. Below are the volunteers who were honored at the 2016 GSSI Annual Meeting.
