Derry woman honored for Girl Scout volunteering


Teresa Murray receives council Honor Pin

DERRY, NH – Theresa Murray, 40, of Derry, was awarded the Honor Pin by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains at its Girl Expo on Oct. 16.  

Murray's support of the Derry Service Unit is incredibly valuable as she has maintained the roles of community liaison, community accounting coordinator, and community product sales coordinator concurrently for several years.

 “Teresa balances these roles with a positive attitude and grace that makes a very busy volunteer schedule look effortless,” said DeeDee Rice, volunteer support specialist for the Girl Scout council. “She communicates with leaders regularly, provides them with timely reminders, and ensures they have everything they need to feel successful as troop leaders.”

“During a very challenging cookie season exacerbated by supply chain issues, Teresa took the helm to support the cookie season for communities outside of her own,” said Robin Boyd, product sales manager for the council. “She accepted this additional responsibility with the grace and ease that is her hallmark - turning what could have been viewed as a challenge into an opportunity. These communities were able to thrive with a successful cookie season thanks to her tireless support, enthusiasm and positivity.”

The Honor Pin recognizes adults who have performed beyond the expectations of their position and have supported the council’s goals in two or more geographic areas. Honor Pin nominations are approved by the Adult Recognitions Task Group and the council’s Board of Directors.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains greatly appreciates the contributions Murray and all its volunteers make every day.
