Mellor Named CEO of Girl Scouts Council
Patricia K. Mellor, the new chief executive officer of the Swift Water Council of Girl Scouts, grew up as a Swift Water Girl Scout herself and is a past president of the groupís board of directors.
In 1982, Mellor earned the Gold Award for girl scouting. She has also been a senior troop leader and a Farnsworth camp counselor. Enthusiastic about her new position and the organization, Mellor says: ďAs a lifelong Scout, I want to give back to an organization that has had a positive impact on my life. I strongly believe that girl scouting provides opportunities for girls to be challenged and to grow strong while having fun and making friends. These opportunities are not usually available elsewhere, despite the proliferation of other youth activities.Ē
Mellor is a founding member of the Nashua law firm, Merra, Kanakis, Creme & Mellor. She graduated from George Washington University School of Law and has been a member of the NH Bar since 1991. She is also a member and former officer of the Nashua Bar Association, a trustee of the Wheeler Memorial Chapel Trust and a senior warden at Faith Episcopal Church in Nashua.
