Libby Odren was nominated for the Appreciation Pin for her outstanding service to Girl Scouts of Oregon and SW Washington and ongoing dedication to her service area and the girls they serve. Libby is an active member of service unit 2 in Vancouver, Washington, and the “go to” person on a small service team. Each year, the team has vacant positions whose duties the team splits to ensure no gaps are left for volunteers in the service unit. Every year, Libby steps up to make sure nothing falls through the cracks, whether that means focusing on recruitment or collecting forms from troops wanting to travel.
Libby has gone above and beyond what is expected of members of the service team while also leading a troop of her own. Having been a troop leader for the past seven years, Libby also holds the role of service unit treasurer and focuses her extra energy on events and opportunities for troops in the area. She makes sure that each year there is a leader-daughter campout, volunteer appreciation event, and service unit campout for all girls—even Girl Scout Daisies! She also goes out of her way every year to help new and experienced troops alike with any and all questions about their financials to ensure the year end process goes smoothly for everyone. Libby is an amazing volunteer who is dedicated to making things happen for the local girls in the Ridgefield and West Vancouver area.
