Meet the Chair of the Board of Directors

Robyn Merrick, Board Chair

Merrick Headshot-2010Robyn was elected the council’s Board Chair in April 2012, having served the prior term as the council’s board secretary. Currently serving as the Director of Alumni Affairs for the Southern University System, Robyn received both a Master of Public Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Business from Southern University and A&M College.

Additional Girl Scout volunteer responsibilities have included Robyn’s service as chair of the Council Realignment Committee’s Fund Development Sub-Committee. She is also very active in the community serving on the boards of Volunteers in Public Schools and the Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting. Previous community service includes Greater New Guide Learning Academy; Board of Directors, the National Conference for Community and Justice; Leadership Baton Rouge; Council on University Relations and Development; Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.; The Links, Incorporated, The Council for Advancement and Support of Education; and LA Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Steering Committee.

Having been a Girl Scout in my younger years, and realizing all of the valuable skills I learned it is a wonderful opportunity to complete the process by giving back to an organization that gave much to me during my developmental years. I am very concerned about the holistic development of young women in these rapidly changing times. So often, due to a variety of reasons, many things are lost in the day-to-day lives of young women, and Girl Scouting not only fills the gap, but also provides endless opportunities to grow beyond perceived limitations. I have offered my input and resources in recent years to the Girl Scouts and look forward to working in any area that the council needs assistance, and more specifically towards enhancing diversity and leadership training.
