Volunteer Spotlight
Ginger Westrick

Ginger has been an essential part of every activity in the Mount Poppy Service Unit.  Not only has she been a wealth of information but she has served as a mentor for new Girl Scout leaders by taking the time and care to advise them as needed.  Ginger also had a crucial role in helping to plan events and implement programs for the Mt. Poppy Service Unit such as the Halloween Bash and World Thinking Day.  As if that was not enough she also did not hesitate to take on the Product Sales Manager role for the Service Unit when needed.  Her commitment to Girl Scout service is not limited to the Service Unit level however.  Her growth in the council-wide Product Sales Department consisted of cookie delivery, securing cookie booth locations, training, and inventory of product. Ginger's unrelenting commitment was most evident on the many windy days and cold mornings in which she helped our mass distribution of cookies for the El Paso area.  Through all of this and more, Ginger continues to epitomize a selfless Girl Scout volunteer.

She is also a recipient of the 2013 Appreciation Pin.
