Shout Out, Girl Scout!

In her thirty years of Girl Scouting, Joan Grochowski from Wilkes-Barre, had been the epitome of living the Girl Scout Law. “She would include you in anything,” said friend and fellow Girl Scout volunteer Kathleen Lockman, “She could meet you for the first time and you were just part of her family.” Joan led multiple Girl Scout groups since the time that her daughters were children, eventually leading her grandaughter's troop.

Joan went above and beyond for the girls in her troops. She encouraged at least 14 Girl Scouts to work towards earning their Gold Award, mentored fellow volunteers, and was the recipient of the GSHPA Forever Green Award in 2014. Sadly, Joan passed away on Jan. 28, 2015. Joan was a more than a role model and mentor to every Girl Scout she met-she was family. Thank you Joan for all your years of service and making a difference in all of our lives!
