Angie Lohrke

Angie Lohrke
of Miles City, MT

Nominated by: Katie Leavitt

Angie is a woman that embodies our mission of courage, confidence and character. She is a dedicated Girl Scout that has been involved with scouting for 20+ years. In her youth, Angie earned her Gold Award and is currently a Girl Scout leader for her daughters’ Troop. She makes Girl Scouts so exciting and fun that her pre-school daughter has been itching to join Girl Scouts since she started talking!

Along with leading, Angie assisted in planning and hosting the Hands Across the Border event in 2009. She created and executed an annual large scale fundraiser for the local Girl Scouts to earn money so any girl that is interested can afford the trip to the Hands Across the Border event each year.

Angie takes her commitment to girls to a deeper level by being a long time Service Unit Manager for Miles City. She holds us together. Her leadership is invaluable and though she deserves a break, she continues serving because it’s in the best interest of the program. She gives of herself freely and without complaint even after she spends her days chasing after the many kids she cares for in her home daycare. She never complains about not having time for herself but rather asks how else she might be able to help.

Angie has definitely made my world a better place!
