Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma satellite office open

MOORE — Although the preferred colors of most in the community are crimson and cream, there is a large population of girls in the county that are happy to officially see green.

One of the most recognizable colors is that of the Girl Scouts; in November, when Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma opened an office in Norman, the green invasion began.

Misti Pryor serves as the community development executive at the Norman site, located in the Community Service Building at 1183 E. Main St.

“It has been a long time coming. Girl Scouts has been in Norman for many years but this is the first for us in branching out and putting in a satellite office in the district,” Pryor said.

Pryor will oversee District 4 of GSWESTOK, which covers Pottawatomie, McClain, Cleveland and Grady counties.

Since the opening of the Norman site, Pryor has seen a lot of traffic at her office. Before the Norman office opened, volunteers and Girl Scouts had to go to Oklahoma City to pick up supplies.

“Volunteers love that we have a local office to pick up and drop off forms, product, anything that needs to travel to (the) council. I tell all of my volunteers that if they need anything from or to (the) council to let me know and I can provide that support for them,” Pryor said. “For the volunteers and our girls, this is an opportunity for them to get materials, to get training to utilize this space for any kind of meeting or any arrangements that they might need that I can help them with.

“It’s much easier for a volunteer from Ninnekah to get to my office than to Oklahoma City to pick up badges and such. I love the office here, and the other agencies at Community Service Building Inc. are just amazing. I sit on their board starting January 2014 as a representing agency.”
