The Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) recently honored Debra O’Gorman, Amanda Roberts and Laurie Hooey for their adult volunteer service and lifelong achievements with the Girl Scouts. Debra, Amanda and Laurie received the GSUSA Appreciation Pin, which recognized their service in support of delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and their memorable impact in at least one community where Girl Scouting is offered.
Debra has been a Leader for seven years, watching her girls grow from Daisys to Cadettes. She is a great role model for girls, and is constantly volunteering despite having a full time job. She teaches her girls to stand up for themselves and do the right thing.
Amanda began her volunteering with GSNC through her work at the Farm in Oyster Bay, leading the Girl Scout Gardner’s Program to new successes. By adding a Leadership Development Program for Cadettes, Seniors & Ambassadors, Amanda created an opportunity for older Girl Scouts to mentor younger Girl Scouts while participating in planting and harvesting organic vegetables that are donated to food pantries.
Laurie, receiving four nominations for the Honor Pin, has been a Leader for all three of her daughters’ troops. While working a full-time job, she is always the first one to volunteer to carpool or help someone in need. Her kindness and leadership are inspirational to everyone she works with.
The ceremony was held at the Hillwood Commons Auditorium at the LIU-Post campus in Brookville.
