Volunteer Spotlight: Michelle Matney

As the troop leader for troop 74590, Michelle Matney has watched her daughter transform from a Girl Scout Daisy to her final year as an Ambassador. What keeps this troop going? Working together as a family.

Michelle says she became a troop leader after her oldest daughter encouraged her to lead her youngest daughter’s troop. She’s now in the 12th grade and on her way to graduation. Last year, when two girls from her troop graduated high school, they’d been with the troop for 12 years.

Being able to witness the growth of her girls has been an amazing experience for Michelle, but she says they still have plenty of goals to achieve in the meantime. This includes working on getting the People Mover badge and taking a well-deserved, end-of-year trip. As a matter of fact, this troop makes an effort to take trips regularly. They work incredibly hard every year, so these trips have become a troop favorite.

Need some advice from this vet? She has this to say:

It’s beautiful to see the dedication and commitment by these young ladies. Set your bar high and the girls will can do anything they set their minds to. All things are possible. We work together as team. It doesn’t matter if we sell 50 boxes of cookies or 1,500 boxes of cookies. We’re all together as a family.
