Every now and then, Girl Scouts - NC Coastal Pines has a volunteer who goes above and beyond. Sherry W., from Cumberland County, is one of those voluteers! Troop Leader, Cookie Mom, PA Facilitator, Event Director, Day Camp Co-Director...the list goes on and on.
However, as a mom of four and a Sunday school teacher, Sherry never loses sight of what it really means to be a Girl Scout Volunteer - to give back to the girls and create memories and experiences that last a lifetime. Read more about Sherry's time with Girl Scouts and why she is an inspiration to us all!
How did you first get involved with Girl Scouts?
I wanted to be my daughter’s Daisy Troop Leader.
What is the best part of being a Girl Scout Volunteer?
The awesome friendships and bonding that comes from working with the girls and other adult volunteers.
Why is volunteering with Girl Scouts important to you?
I get to be a part of a program that is helping my daughter and other girls to have self confidence, build leadership skills, and learn that if she works hard she can achieve any goal that she sets forth for herself, no matter what.
How do you fit in volunteering with your schedule?
By being a stay at home mom, I have more time to fit volunteering into my schedule. However, finding time is always a challenge, you just have to find a way!
