Volunteer Spotlight: Megan McConnell

Girl Scouting has been a part of Megan McConnell life for as long as she can remember. 

Her grandmother was a troop leader in the 1950s and her mom was a leader for her sister’s troop in the 1990s. She began her Girl Scouts journey in third grade and loved every moment of it. 

“I learned about so many different things and met friends I had all the way through high school,” she says. When she became a mother herself, Megan wanted her triplet daughters to have the same opportunities.

Volunteering as troop product program manager and troop treasurer gave her a good perspective for when she became leader of Troop 77652 in Farmington Hills. 

“I love our troop because I work with amazing parents and their daughters who are interested in so many things. I love watching the girls make new friends get so excited about learning something new,” she says. 

Megan says the most rewarding part of being involved with a troop is how you might help a girl develop an interest in something they never would have tried or thought about before. Even if an initial interest doesn’t bloom into a full-time hobby or more, Megan believes just trying something new offers benefits in school, in developing relationships and selecting career paths. 

“Girl Scouts gave me many chances to try things I might never tried and that let me figure out what I was most interested in,” Megan says.

Whether it’s horseback riding, pottery, painting, astronomy, camping, cooking, or coding, Girl Scouts sets young women up for a future full of opportunities and that is exciting!
