Girl Scout parents can nominate outstanding leaders

Nominations are being sought for local “Outstanding Leader” or “Leader with a Heart” awards from the La Cañada Flintridge Girl Scout program. The awards are presented at the end of the school year at a leader recognition dinner.

The Outstanding Leader award goes to a leader or co-leader for outstanding performance in working with girls and effective use of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to discover, connect and take action.

The Leader with a Heart award is given to a leader or co-leader by parents and girls in a troop who believe the nominee to be outstanding in program delivery and troop leadership and who leads their troop with heart.

The nomination form can be found online at www.lcfgirlscouts.net. The form, plus two letters of endorsement from troop members or their families, must be submitted by March 15 to Joan Raney, 830 Green Lane, La Cañada 91011.
