Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma

Christi Williams, of Moore, has been selected as the outstanding mentor of the year for Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma (GSWESTOK).  

Moore was nominated by Marci Corey, troop support manager at GSWESTOK. She has served as the troop leader for Troop 600 for the past ten years. The troop provides leadership for girls ages 6-17 years-old in Moore.

In addition to her role as a troop leader, Christi is also a service unit recruiter, a member of the Service Unit Mentor team for Service Unit 649 in Moore, and is on the Outdoor Committee and the Alumni Committee at the council level. She has lead events like Come and Play Juliette’s Way Troop Leader and she taught a class at Girl Scout University last year.

Christi was a Girl Scout Honor Pin recipient in 2015, which is a council award that recognizes volunteers who have gone above and beyond in their service to others.

“She is constantly in contact with leaders from other service units and goes to meetings to help guide new leaders on their leadership path,” Corey said. “She is an outstanding mentor to both girls and adult volunteers.”
