Greenwich residents Cindy Zizzi and Mary Elizabeth FitzRoy received national honors during the Girl Scouts of Connecticut annual meeting May 28.
Ms. Zizzi was awarded the Appreciation Pin, which is given to adult volunteers who promote inclusive behavior and provide outstanding service beyond expectation. Ms. Zizzi is the service unit manager, QSP manager and assistant leader for the Greenwich Service Unit. From her position she organized a program to guarentee that each group had a trained CPR/First Aid volunteer, and helped coordinate the loading and unloading of 16,730 cases of cookies for more than 275 Girl Scout troops.
Ms. FitzRoy received the Volunteer of Excellence Pin which, according to the organization, “recognizes those volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through use of the national program portfolio” or have contributed outstanding service in support of the council’s mission delivery to girl and adult members.”
As the Troop Leader and Recognitions Chair of the Greenwich Service Unit, Ms. FitzRoy helped increase recruitment in the last few years. She also works to ensure Girl Scout participation in town events and helps connect scouts with successful women during the unit’s Career Day.
Both Girl Scout volunteers exemplifiy the core values of the organization and have helped build the Greenwich Service Unit into a stronger more cohesive team.
