Donor Spotlight: Nancy Mucklow
Ask Nancy Mucklow how long she’s been a Girl Scout and she’ll say “forever!”
From her days as a Brownie in Wyoming, Girl Scouts has been a part of Nancy’s life for more than four decades. She participated in camp, traveled the world on Wider Ops and, in 1981, she was the first Girl Scout to earn a Gold Award in Mountain Prairie Council in Northeastern Colorado. She was a collegiate Girl Scout at Colorado State University, eventually leading her first troop in Wagon Wheel Council in Southern Colorado. Then she moved to the mountains, managed a Chipeta Council Service Unit and has been part of Girl Scouts in Routt County ever since!
Today, Nancy is a Lifetime Girl Scout, service unit manager, Gold Award mentor, and leader of not one, but two troops in Steamboat Springs (one Daisy and one Senior). She’s also a member of the Daisy’s Circle Founding 100, Juliette Gordon Low Legacy Society, and a regular contributor to annual and endowment funds. As an avid volunteer, she’s put her money where her volunteer heart beats AND she likes the opportunity to join with other like-minded folks to support a movement that is helping to change the world!
Nancy’s volunteer leadership has helped Girl Scouts to grow in Steamboat Springs, earning her a prestigious Thanks Badge in 2017. She’s served on the Girl Scouts of Colorado Membership Connection Committee, been a National Convention delegate, and even a member of the statewide Board of Directors. She’s invested her time, talent, and treasure in her lifelong passion, and it’s paid off. Today, Steamboat Springs Girl Scouts have more opportunities than ever! From theater weekends in Denver to STEM programs to overseas adventures, Nancy coordinates regional funding sources to make great things happen for girls in her community.
She tells us that her Girl Scout adventures are endless and continue to grow as she takes on new mentoring opportunities. “Girl Scouts gives girls a platform for leadership, a chance to learn together, explore in a safe and adventuresome environment, and experience friendships with a sisterhood of girls and women worldwide.”
Nancy is right when she says, “Whatever small amount you are doing – it’s important. Even if you can only do one small thing, it matters, and it makes a difference in the lives of girls.”
