Volunteer Spotlight
Kathy Hassell

Kathy Hassell is a Girl Scout in every sense of the word.  There is not  enough time to recount all she has given to Girl Scouting.  She was a Girl Scout herself, she has been a Troop Leader for various Troops, she is  a volunteer trainer, worked at our resident camp, served as Treasurer, Troop Cookie Manager, active with Troop Mitre and most recently, has helped to coordinate this year’s Annual Meeting in Odessa, Texas.  As an outdoor enthusiast she volunteers her time to make sure other adult Leaders are trained in the outdoor skills so they can take their girls camping with confidence.  She has led Girl Scout Troops in Texas as well as abroad having spent some time in Korea.  She offers her girls with opportunities they would not otherwise be exposed to and encourages them to serve their community thru activities such as serving Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless at a local church or sewing scarves for a local cancer center for women.  For over 50 years she has given of herself to the girls in her Troops, to fellow volunteers, to her community, to all that Girl Scouting represents.   For a Troop Leader there are few things as rewarding as seeing your own Girl Scouts grow before your eyes from Daisies to High School graduates.  Well she has done that several times over.  In fact, being the Troop Leader of her current group of 13 years she will get to see THEM graduate this year.  SHE lives the Promise and the Law.  SHE bleeds Girl Scout green. SHE is an inspiration to all, including yours truly.  SHE IS the best of us.  SHE IS a Girl Scout Volunteer, and I must admit that we cannot do her justice with these humble words.  Among her accolades is the most recent 2015 Daffy Tabor Award.
