Honoring a “truly awesome” Colorado Girl Scout volunteer

On Saturday, Oct. 12th, the Denver Elks Lodge #17 honored one of my favorite Denver metro area Girl Scout volunteers, Leslee Randolph, with the Citizen of the Year Award. Leslee is one of the first volunteers I met when I started working at Girl Scouts of Colorado nine years ago. At the time she was leading the Girl Scout troop who helped Colorado adopt a State Rock, the Yule Marble.

Leslee has been serving the community through Girl Scouts since 1996, making this her 17th year with Girl Scouts of Colorado! During that time she has helped mold and inspire countless girls and women to be leaders in their communities. Currently, Leslee serves as Service Unit Manager in her area, Denver Gold Award Committee Chair and Troop Mentor. She started as a parent volunteer in 1996, became a leader in 2000, then joined as a Service Unit Manager soon after. She has graduated two troops, represents Girl Scouting to the community through events, and ensures that supportive services are provided to girls, parents and volunteers.

As Service Unit Manager (the highest position in the unit), she manages, supports and guides a team of volunteers to deliver a quality Girl Scout experience for all Girl Scouts, adults and girls alike. As Gold Award Committee Chair for Denver, she is great at working with the girls and goes above and beyond to mentor them in a really effective way. She is also a mentor to others on the committee and has helped train new members in what high quality Gold Award projects look like and how to work with girls on enhancing their projects.

It’s been a true pleasure for myself, as well as the other staff at Girl Scouts of Colorado to work with Leslee through the years. She’s very passionate and fun to be around. Her enthusiasm for Girl Scouts and volunteering is contagious, and we can’t think of a better representative of what Girls Scouts is all about!

Congratulations, Leslee! Thank you for your continued service to Girl Scouting, and we look forward to working with you for many years ahead!
