The Monroe-Woodbury Girl Scout Community recently honored 19 graduating Girl Scouts and Monroe-Woodbury High School seniors, and presented four of them with the Nora Jean Fields Memorial Scholarship, which recognized their community service to the greater Monroe-Woodbury and school communities during their 13-year tenure as Girl Scouts.

Scholarship winners are: Kaitlyn Andreala of Troop 380; Sara Mallory of Troop 468; Rebecca Pomerantz of Troop 108; and Emily Williams of Troop 753.

The 19 Monroe-Woodbury seniors graduating from the Monroe-Woodbury Girl Scout Service Unit are:

‘Grace, perseverance and tenacity’

The graduates would have been honored during the service unit’s annual leader dinner in June. The recognition event was not able to be held due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Representatives of the service unit’s management team visited the scholarship winners’ homes and delivered their awards following social distance mandates.

“Congratulations to all these wonderful young ladies who have shown dedication to Girl Scouting and to their community through great service,” said Volunteer Service Unit Manager Barbara Mallory “It’s an incredible commitment to be a Girl Scout throughout your academic careers.

“All of these young women are role models for our younger Girl Scouts, particularly during this COVID-19 pandemic, where they’ve shown grace, perseverance and tenacity,” Mallory added. “We wish them all the best, and we know they will be successful in all their future adventures.”
