GSSI is pleased to announce Mandy Bizaillion of Scheller is the May Pearl of the Month.The Pearl of the Month Award recognizes a Girl Scout volunteer who has delivered service beyond expectations and helped to ensure that approximately 14,000 Girl Scouts in southern Illinois benefit from a premier Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Nominees must meet several criteria, including completion of all required training for his or her volunteer position as well as providing outstanding service to his or her Service Unit or the Council.
While balancing career and family, Mandy finds time to create energetic, creative, and educational activities for her troop of 25 girls in multiple grade levels. The troop is active in the community through events and community service projects. Perhaps one of her most successful initiatives, was the recruitment of High School girls to serve as "Intern Assistant Leaders" to work with her troop. The younger girls adore the older role models and the extra hands help Mandy to deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience effectively and efficiently.
