Debbie Cox was nominated for the Honor Pin for her exemplary service as a Girl Scout volunteer. Living in North Bend on the southern coast of Oregon, she manages a service unit that runs all the way from Reedsport to the California border. Debbie is a driving force behind a thriving Girl Scout community in service unit 62 and is the face of Girl Scouting in that area. As service unit manager and council trainer Debbie almost single-handedly supported her SU during a time of great transition. When GSOSW’s staff representative moved from North Bend to Medford, Debbie stepped in to keep the area functioning and was instrumental during the transition acting as council representative for the community.
Troops thrive and grow under Debbie’s supervision and leadership. As a member of the GSOSW trainer corps, she connects and works closely with all new volunteers in the area. She guides these brand new Girl Scout leaders to complete their required training and welcomes them into her home to take part in small group training classes.
Debbie is the rock and the foundation of service unit 62 and goes above and beyond every day for the girls. She acts as a sounding board for leaders and parents, keeps the service unit moving forward, and does her best to solve conflicts that arise. She is a mentor to everyone and exemplifies the Girl Scout Leadership Experience wherever she goes. Debbie ensures Girl Scouting happens wherever she is for the betterment of the community.
