Winn Girl Scout leader named Working Woman of the Year

MOUNT PLEASANT – Teresa Judge, Girl Scout leader extraordinaire, received the title of 2013 CFX/MFCU Working Woman of the Year at the 24th annual CFX Salute to Working Women on April 11. Sponsored by CFX 95.3 radio station and Members First Credit Union.

Teresa, who is an administrative clerk for grants and contracts in CMU’s College of Science and Technology, was nominated for the award by her sister, Tia, who said that Teresa, a mother of five children – 11-year-old triplet boys and 8-year-old twin girls – deserved to be recognized because she works full-time and is an active member of the Winn Elementary Parents Club, Winn Area Activity Center, Girl Scouts of America and Sacred Heart Church.

The award recognizes the contributions of women to the community, workplace and those around them.

“I have been a Girl Scout leader for 2 1/2 years,” Teresa said. “I have lead my twin daughters through 1/2 year of Daisies and this is their second year of Brownies. We have seven girls in our small troop, but they love to earn badges and are eager to have fun. This year the troop is excited and gearing up for a zoo excursion where they will get to see and pet giraffes.”

Chosen as the winner – from among five finalists – by CFX and MFCU personnel, Teresa received a commemorative clock from JNR Engraving in Mount Pleasant, 10 seconds in the MFCU cash machine, a floral bouquet from Elliot’s Greenhouse, a year’s worth of services from Level 7 Salon, and most importantly, a sash that she proudly wears in the office and lets everyone around her know that she is the 2013 CFX/MFCU Working Woman of the Year.
