Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state. Chere Johnson in the Pikes Peak region is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.
GSCO asked Chere to answer a few quick questions about her volunteer experience. We hope you find her as inspiring as we did.
Why did you become a Girl Scout volunteer?
I became a Girl Scout volunteer when my daughter decided to join Girl Scouts so she could try to sell cookies. The troop was in need of help so I stepped up and helped where I could.
Tell us about your different volunteer roles as a Girl Scout.
I have now been helping for the last 9 years. I have volunteered to be the Daisy leader, I am also part of the Cadette, Senior and Ambassador leadership team. I am also the troop fall product and cookie manager.
What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?
During my years of volunteering I have learned a few things, each girl is unique and special in their own way. I love watching the girls learn new things they can do.
What do you hope girls have learned from you?
I hope the girls learn from me to never be afraid to try something new.
