Volunteer Spotlight: Kathy Swan

A lifelong Girl Scout continues the family tradition.

As long as she can remember, Kathy Swan has been involved with Girls Scouts.  

“Since I was born, service was instilled in us from childhood. We have always been a scouting family,” she recalls.  

Kathy has the special privilege of keeping that family tradition going as she serves as a troop leader for both her granddaughters—a Cadette and a Daisy. 

Kathy has held many volunteer positions for Troops 76144 and 77977, including Community Event Coordinator, Service Unit Communication Liaison, Troop Support Volunteer, and Welcome Champion.  

She is enjoying the duality of working with younger and older Girl Scouts, preparing each for their important year-end celebrations, and looking forward to helping them start Gold Award projects.  

“Girl Scouts is such a meaningful and important part of my life.  It means a lot to me that I help keep the traditions alive in scouting,” she said.  

One of those traditions is camping. Her favorite memory involves multiple colorful tents scattered across a stunning campsite. “It is a sight I will never forget. To think that I got those girls to that point is just a great feeling. I love being able to share my knowledge and excitement about scouting with others.”  

“Don’t expect to do this on your own! There are other leaders who would love to help and share their experiences and knowledge with you.”   – Kathy Swan
