As the leader of Black Diamond Girl Scout Troop #4609, Gouldsberry works tirelessly to ensure scouts, ranging in age 5 to 18, contribute to the community through a variety of service activities. Over the years, Gouldsberry has organized numerous service projects for the girls. For example, they have held drives for animal shelters donating much-needed items to the shelter, including 100 cat toys the scouts made themselves. They have organized toiletry drives for the House of the Carpenter, a local shelter serving the physical needs of the disadvantaged and disenfranchise.

This past December, Gouldsberry and her troop help make Christmas brighter for less fortunate children. The troop applied for and received a grant. They used the money to purchase 100 Hasbro toys, which they donated to their community’s “Caring Tree” program to help ensure every child had a gift to open on Christmas morning.

In addition to improving the lives of girls as a scout leader, Gouldsberry is active in Boy Scouts and 4H serving in several leadership roles with the groups during the past eight years. For the past five years, she has served as a Lego Robotics coach engaging youth in STEM education.
