You never know when or where you’ll discover your passion.…
Julie Parsons-Hall is proud to be guiding the next generation of leaders.
Like many GSSEM volunteers, Julie got involved to spend quality time with her daughters. Her goal was to give them the chance to make wonderful memories, much like she has, of Girl Scouting.
Of all the different ways Julie has volunteered for the Girl Scouts over the years—including as the community event coordinator, troop product program manager, and troop treasurer—being a troop leader is her favorite role.
She has watched Troop 77280 grow from three first graders from Flushing to an Ambassador troop with members from the surrounding communities of Swartz Creek and Gaines.
“I enjoy providing a variety of scouting opportunities for the girls to build character, find their courage and enjoy themselves.”
Julie is a big believer in utilizing every available resource to accomplish goals. Her lessons will come in handy as the troop is setting their sights on Savannah, birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, in the spring and for the two members earning their Gold Awards.
“It’s a great opportunity to help girls realize they can do anything they set their mind to,” she said.
“Don’t be worried about how to be a “good” leader for girls, because in truth the girls are the leaders. You’re simply there to help them learn how to make their hopes and dreams come true.”Julie Parsons-Hall
