OSSINING, N.Y. – Emily Rodriguez, an Ossining resident, has been selected at the recipient of the inaugural Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson Juliette Gordon Low Leadership Award that will be presented at the Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson’s Leadership Luncheon honoring our Community Partners, scheduled for Friday, March 13, at the Doubletree by Hilton, Tarrytown.
The award, named for the founder of the Girl Scouts, was created to honor one young alumnae between the ages of 21 and 30, who participated in Scouting as a girl for at least three years, and has distinguished herself as an exceptional leader in her chosen profession and/or her current volunteer capacity in her community.
Rodriguez joined Girl Scouting in the Heart of the Hudson Council as a Daisy. She was part of troops in Ossining (troop 1212) and Yorktown (troop 1483). She earned her Gold Award as a high school senior, and for her project, she led a self-esteem workshop for pre-teenage girls in her council.
Rodriguez’s roles within Girl Scouting as an adult include troop leader, youth delegate and coordinator at U.N. conferences, volunteer at council-wide events, and ski instructor for Girl Scout troops. During her studies in Sweden, she was a leader for high school Scouts and a part of the building team at the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden. Currently, she is a Gold Award Mentor for the Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson (GSHH) council.
“We are excited to award Emily the inaugural GSHH Juliette Gordon Low Leadership Award," said Pamela I. Anderson, chief executive officer of the GSHH. "We know that once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout and we want to honor the young alumnae who go on to do amazing things. Emily represents all of the qualities that Juliette Gordon Low envisioned when she started Girl Scouts 103 years ago. As a young alumnae, Emily embodies the qualities we teach at Girl Scouts.”
