Volunteer Spotlight: Debbie Haskins

As a Girl Scout volunteer for more than 20 years, Debbie Haskins has done just about everything.  She has been as a troop leader at every level, a Service Unit manager, a Gold Award mentor, Membership Connections Committee member and a National Delegate.

As an attorney at the State Capitol, Debbie put in countless hours preparing for and helping host Girl Scout Day at the Capitol. This annual event is a day-long workshop for older girls to learn about law-making and running for office.

Debbie’s passion for older Girl Scouts, especially those who complete their Highest Awards, is unmatched. Debbie made it one of her missions to make people aware of the Girl Scout Gold Award and the girls who earn this prestigious honor. Once achieved, the Gold Award shows colleges, employers and the community that Girl Scouts are changing the world.

On October 7, 2017, Girl Scouts suddenly lost a dear friend in Debbie. Through an outpouring of donations in her memory, her legacy will live on through the Debbie Haskins Spirit of Girl Scouting Award which will annually recognize a Gold Award Girl Scout who exemplifies the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

Debbie was an incredible asset to Girl Scouts of Colorado, choosing to work largely behind the scenes rather than taking the limelight, believing this was the best way to be a role model for and to make life better for countless girls.
