Suffolk resident Diana Crewe received an Honor Pin recently for her service to the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast.
The award recognizes Girl Scout volunteers for their service in support of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, where that support had a measurable impact in two or more geographical areas of service in the local Girl Scout Council’s jurisdiction.
Crewe is a Girl Scout leader for two troops in Suffolk, and she holds separate weekly meetings with both groups. She also holds administrative roles as a member of the volunteer support team to help with adult learning opportunities, product sales and more.

In addition to working with girls and adults in Suffolk, Crewe also volunteers as a canoeing and archery instructor to train volunteers and give more girls access to outdoor adventure activities.
Cheryl Watters, who volunteers with one of Crewe’s troops, nominated her to receive the award.
“She has been my co-leader for the last four years and has brought volumes of expertise and excitement in Girl Scouting to our troop,” Watters said. “She is a very humble mentor, and she helps our girls build confidence.”
Crewe has also volunteered numerous hours in the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast office, where she helps with data entry and has worked at the front desk during staff meetings.
