In Gretna, Kraus has worked as coordinator of product sales, and Toomer has ensured that many girls attending public schools have access to Girl Scouts. In Harvey, Potts has taken on many roles at the troop and service unit levels during her two years as a Girl Scout volunteer.
Mollohan, who serves on the council’s board of directors as first vice chair, and board Secretary LeBlanc each received a Years of Service pin for 25 years of volunteer service. Mauterer and St. Pierre were recognized for 30 years of volunteer service.
