Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Recognizes Local Volunteers

Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) recently honored Girl Scout volunteer Nancy Flatt for her many years of service to the organization. She received her award during the annual Fall Council Meeting.

Flatt was awarded the Thanks Badge II. This award recognizes an adult member who has already received the Thanks Badge and who has continued to contribute in extraordinary ways that benefit the total Council or the entire Girl Scout Movement.

For the past 20 years, Nancy Flatt has continued to give service to girls and adults in GSSJC. Whether the job is big or small, she always offers service with a smile. She’s always willing to share her time and talents. Flatt has spent several weekends at camp training Standard Troop Camping to adults. She is a valuable administrative trainer helping new administrative volunteers, and she mentors new apprentice trainers.

Flatt served on the Council’s Board of Directors and was vice president of the Council. She now serves as member of the Council Finance Committee and is chair of the Council Recognitions Committee. Outside the Girl Scouts, Flatt is a docent for the Houston Zoo and an allocations volunteer of the United Way of the Texas Gulf Coast.

Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's preeminent organization for girls, with a membership of more than 3.5 million girls and adults. Today, as when founded in 1912, GSUSA helps cultivate values, social conscience, and self-esteem in young girls, while also teaching them critical life skills that will enable them to succeed as adults. In Girl Scouting--and its special girl-only environment--girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together.

Chartered by GSUSA to provide Girl Scouting locally, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is one of the largest Girl Scout councils in the country serving over 58,000 girl members and 14,000 adults in 21 southeast Texas counties.

GSSJS Pluralism Statement
Embracing and promoting pluralism is an integral part of every activity and plan of Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council, not disconnected or separate projects. Only individuals willing to accept and be educated about the basic tenet that Girl Scouting is for all girls may serve in volunteer leadership or staff positions.
