Congratulations to Elaina Colussi, who received the 2015 Luella

best demonstrates the same qualities that Luella Shaver, a longtime,
dedicated volunteer, showed in her life as a Girl Scout. The
scholarship began in 1982 and is awarded each year to an exceptional
graduating Girl Scout Ambassador who earned her Girl Scout Gold Award.
It is awarded for educational pursuits, such as college, vocational
training and/or apprenticeship programs at an accredited school. The
scholarship recipient is determined by a special committee and panel
of judges, including Luella’s daughters Mary and Zizi Shaver.
The Emerald Circle will be granting scholarships twice annually to

raised through donations. You can be a part of this exciting movement
