NOTTINGHAM, NH – Lee Lederer, 45, of Nottingham, has been recognized by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains with its Volunteer of Excellence award.
Lederer has been a Girl Scout member since 2015 and currently is the Community Accounting Coordinator for her service unit as well as a troop leader. She stepped into that role when the previous volunteer stepped down. She was able to organize everything, guided all the leaders with their bank accounts and made sure all of the council’s policies were in place and adhered to.
“Lee spends endless hours creating spreadsheets and documents to help create financial transparency and accurate reporting for our community,” said New Leader Mentor Corinne George.
“Lee has taken on a position and made it very professional with her voice of calm, and a genuine commitment towards respect for others,” said ChrisAnn Wiechert, one of the council’s community team members. “She is working directly with leaders as a conduit for questions, advice and sharing of their experiences.”
Lederer is patient and caring, and aware that fiscal responsibility can be overwhelming for leaders without strong accounting foundations or even strong mathematical knowledge, and has created an atmosphere where leaders seek guidance, speak up and ask questions. She is always available to provide the answers or seek the answers out.
Lederer was recognized at a virtual meeting of her service unit on June 18.
