Adult Recognition Award Program

GSGLA volunteers are the heartbeat and the core of our organization. Quite literally, Girl Scouting would not exist without the dedication and talents of our volunteers. We couldn’t serve the girls without you, and the untold hours of time that you give define our excellence as a council. In Girl Scouting, we want to recognize and celebrate our volunteers and their service.

GSGLA holds a Volunteer Recognition Ceremony each spring to honor our outstanding volunteers. Volunteers are nominated for prestigious Girl Scout awards and recognitions. For questions regarding nominations or the event, contact

SU647 Lancaster

Bernandette Garland


Bernie has been an active leader for many years! Not only has she lead a troop from early elementary into high school, she has volunteered for many years to help our service unit make positive relationships with our local businesses during cookie season. She has volunteered for many years to set up the cookie boothing locations for all troops in our service unit to help make a successful cookie season. Even through her personal struggle with battling cancer, she continues to volunteer and contribute to our local Girl Scout needs. I would like to salute her as a fellow Girl Scout Leader!

SU650 North River

Christine Roselund


Christine volunteered as our Treasurer and Secretary, then as our troop's Fall Product Chair. We are a brand new troop just getting our feet wet and she is there as our 2nd adult to fulfill any gaps in the girl:adult ratio. She steps up to volunteer whenever we have a project or field trip that the girls are interested in. She has been a terrific asset to our troop. We just formed over the summer and we've participated in Songs N S'mores, Patrol Challenge, Follow Me Girls, & Trunk or Treat. Christine volunteered to make all of these events possible! We're thankful she's part of our Troop#1372!

Volunteer of the Month is a great way to celebrate your fellow volunteers, and now the nomination process is easier than ever! Just submit the form below.
