It is with deep sadness that I inform you that Gail Maupin passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon. Most recently, Gail served as the council’s Director of Product, Retail, and Council Enterprise System (CES) and was based in our Johnson City Service Center.

Gail worked for Girl Scouts for over 27 years, in almost every role possible from membership, in the shop, as a registrar for resident camp and reservations, and even as the IT specialist in the legacy Appalachians office. She was an amazing wealth of Girl Scouts history and knowledge, and held a deep understanding of how all the pieces in our organization fit together to fulfill our mission. Her colleagues that knew her the longest reflect fondly on her love of Girl Scouts, particularly our cookie program, and the way she “lived and breathed” Girl Scouting. She embraced learning and implemented what she learned to make her work stronger. Gail placed others’ needs before her own, and always greeted everyone with a smile, joke or friendly word. Her advice was always valued; her attitude always appreciated.

We do not have further details to offer at this time, but will release pertinent information as it becomes available. Gail was a strong woman who loved her family, and we ask that you please keep the Maupin family in your thoughts and prayers during this tragedy.

Gail embodied so much of what Girl Scouting stands for, and the loss we feel is immeasurable. Our service centers and call center will be closed today (Tuesday, April 17). Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time.
