To receive the Go-Getter award, a recipient must be bold and determined to succeed. Whatever the obstacle, our go getter will figure it out, get back up and try again. The Go Getter displays vision and ambition, jumps on board with Girl Scout opportunities, and is often involved in multiple Girl Scout projects.
Recipients: Mike & Teresa Colgan
Mike & Teresa Colgan have supported Girl Scouts for more than 20 years. Together, they have made an incredible financial impact on girls. Teresa is a Girl Scout alum and lifetime member who served on the board since 2007, serving two terms at the helm. She was the board chair during the realignment that helped us to become the Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. She also led the amazing process of building Camp Liberty, ensuring our girls continued to have an amazing place to create outdoor experiences. Mike too has been connected and supportive of Girl Scouts all along the way. He steps up any time there are opportunities to financially support girls or host some wacky Girl Scout fundraisers at their home. Together, this dynamic couple have given so much time and treasure so that girls can become their best selves, and for that they receive this year’s Go-Getter award.
