Schropfer Recognized For Service To Scouting

By Russ Coash, assistant Scoutmaster

Fairmont resident Georgia Schropfer has been recognized for her decades of service to scouting. Scout BSA Troop No. 175 presented Schropfer with a plaque and their gratitude during their advancement ceremony on September 13. 
The event held at the Lions Club in Geneva celebrated the achievements of several Scouts. Schropfer, who recently retired from her position as Scoutmaster, was asked to perform one more task for Troop No. 175 – help with awarding merit badges and rank to the Scouts at the Court of Honor.
Scoutmaster Scott Schelkopf felt that it would be appropriate for Schropfer to lead the ceremony. Georgia Schropfer has worked with these Scouts for many years in different leadership roles. Since 2017, she has been the Scoutmaster for the troop.
Georgia has invested countless hours over the years working directly with the Scouts to help them create the program for the troop providing direction, coaching and support. She has also devoted a great deal of time, energy and attention to her own development as a leader.
