Volunteer Spotlight: Daly Edmunds

Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Daly Edmunds from the Northern & Northeastern CO region is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.

GSCO asked Daly 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?

Unfortunately, life being what it is, our two troop leaders had to step away from their roles and they needed parents to step up or the troop would dissolve. My daughter loved her troop and really enjoyed being a Girl Scout. I didn’t want that experience to end for her so I stepped in.

Tell us about your different volunteer roles as a Girl Scout.

Troop leader and am also Cookie Manager this year

What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?

  1. Not having been a Girl Scout growing up, I’m learning as I go along!

  2. The old saying, “It takes a village,” is certainly true with Girl Scouts.  Without my amazing co-leader Amber, the parents in the troop, and the invaluable former Girl Scout troop leaders that GSCO connected us with – Joyce and Patty – we couldn’t get through the recent tough times or enjoy the fun times as much!

What do you hope girls have learned from you?

That they each have their own unique skillsets that they can contribute to make their corner of the world better!
