Meet Barbara Barone - 2012 Woman of Distinction

Barbara “Bobby” Barone has been a part of Girl Scouts for almost all her life. She currently leads Girl Scout Troop 401 in DeKalb County. She also serves as service unit manager, cookie manager and day camp director of Service Unit 21 in DeKalb County.

Barone serves as secretary of the Master Gardeners; she is a board member and volunteer for the Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound of DeKalb County; and is a volunteer for the United Givers Fund of DeKalb County. She is also very active with her church, Our Lady of the Valley.

Barone says the most valuable lesson she has learned through service to her community is, “What you do for other comes back to you a hundred-fold.”
