Congrats to Christine Shingleton for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Girl Scouts of Orange County
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Christine Shingleton has been instrumental in helping to turn discussions about a Girl Scout Leadership Center in Newport Beach into a reality. She has served on Girl Scouts of Orange County’s Board of Directors on and off for the past 18 years and is currently Board Secretary and a member of the Board’s Finance Committee. A passionate advocate of Girl Scouting, Chris has donated hundreds of hours of her time to the advancement and development of the Girl Scout Leadership Center in Newport Beach. She has represented Girl Scouts of Orange County in contract negotiations with the City of Newport Beach resulting in the best terms possible. Without Chris’ technical expertise and skills, Girl Scouts of Orange County would not have been able to navigate this process. Chris helped our council secure the conditional use permit; a 50 year, $1.00 per year ground lease; and memorandum of agreement for construction of the Girl Scout Leadership Center. She also played a pivotal role in reviewing the leadership center’s design and construction documents, providing expertise and insight that has helped us control costs while ensuring a high quality end product.
