The United Way is announcing that Jackie Jackson has been chosen to be the Volunteer of the month for October. Jackie volunteers with the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland and has been a troop leader for 5 years. During this time she has led at least one troop or assisted in leading multiple troops at the same time.
“Jackie is always willing to jump in and help when needed. She has assisted me in Recruitment Night by leading the perspective girls through activities similar to what they might do in a troop, giving them a taste of Girl Scouts,” said Regional Director, Kendra O’Reilly.
Jackie encourages the parents to be active participants in their daughter’s troop. By doing this she fosters the parent/daughter bond with the families in the troop.
Jackie has led the girls in participating in the Clean Up Coshocton day even when the weather has been less than cooperative.
Jackie lives with her husband and 3 children in Coshocton.
