BC: We have watched you girls grow before our eyes in so many ways. Through good times and bad you were always there for each other. Your unity made you strong as a group, and determined as individuals. As your Girl Scout journey ends, your new journey begins. We hope you will not forget us, as we know we will never forget you. You girls have Courage, Confidence and Character. And because of this we are hoping that you too will share your knowledge with the next generation of Girl Scouts. Love Always, Deb Schultz and Dori Mathieu

They performed for their parents, Holyoke Soldiers Home and the Shriner's Hospital. | In 2011 Krystle gave the Lupa Zoo a makeover. | In 2011 Megan started an after school Philosophy Club at her local high school. | In 2005 Haley & Kate set up a table at the local Boy's and Girl's Club's fall festival. They did arts & crafts projects with the kids. They were each dressed in a costume and offered the children to have their picture taken with them for free in front of the background they had made. | In 2004 Megan assisted in the Westfield School Systems summer program. With the help of the local teachers, she was able to assist the special needs children to maintain what they have learned through the year.
2: Krystle Schultz | Scouting has been a part of my life ever since I can remember. Starting off as just a little Brownie Girl Scout making arts and crafts. I have now grown and not only learned many more interesting and difficult skills such as how to trapeze and scuba dive but I have also learned many life lessons and skills that will help me become the adult that I want to be. I have accomplished my Bronze, Silver and Gold awards and have been inducted into the National Junior Honor Society and the National Honor Society as a lifetime member. I am currently attending the University of Rhode Island studying both Animal Science and Marine Biology with an intended minor in Chemistry.
4: Lisa St. Sauveur | I started Girl Scouts as a way to see my friend more often. It soon became an integral part of my life. After twelve years of scouting I am no longer the little shy girl in the corner. I can now confidently lead a group of young girls and interact with them without any trouble. I achieved my Silver Award in Girl Scouting and will be attending Holyoke Community College in the fall with a major in Liberal Arts.
6: Megan Fuller | I started Girl Scouts thirteen years ago as a Daisy. Scouting has given me countless unique opportunities, including rock climbing, horseback riding, camping and flying a plane! Girl Scouts has also been a major impact on who I am today. It taught me the value of helping others, self confidence and ambition along with the major importance of my actions in everyday situations. Through Girl Scouts I have earned my Bronze, Silver and just this year my Gold Award. Outside of Girl Scouting I have earned my National Junior Honor Society, National Honor Society, The President's Service Award. Through Venture Crew I earned two Bronze awards and the Gold Award. This Fall I will be attending Framingham State University majoring in Criminology and Psychology with a minor in Spanish.
8: Haley Mathieu | I started Girl Scouts as a Daisy in 1999. I have successfully completed both the Bronze and Silver awards. Girl Scouts has helped me become a leader, to try new things, and to step out of my comfort zone. It has also taught me the value of honoring my commitments. I was a varsity cheerleader for all four years of high school. I have been a volunteer cheerleading coach for the Westfield Youth Cheerleading program for four years and volunteered at Camp Star/Angelina, a special needs summer camp for the past three years. I have been a student teacher at my high school's preschool program for the past two years and was a student leader in the special education class as well. I will be attending HCC in the Early Childhood Program in the fall.
10: Kate Shaugnessy | Girl Scouting has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I began scouting as a Daisy and I'm still here 13 years later. Graduation is a big part of a teenager's life, but for me becoming an Adult Girl Scout is just as high an honor. I have built relationships that will be everlasting. I earned my Bronze Award with my best friend and we have had the chance to enjoy many scouting events together. I am currently working part time at Hamilton Sundstrand as an engineering intern and will remain employed there while I attend Springfield Technical Community College in the fall of 2012. Scouting gave me the values I needed to become an active part in all aspects of life and without the things I have learned from scouting I wouldn't be where I am today. Along with scouting I am an active member of the Boys & Girls Club and was recently named Youth of the Year for the Westfield club. I look forward to what lies ahead and I know that scouting will always remain part of my life.
