The Susie Forest Patch Program was developed in honor of Susie Stephens. Susie was born in April of 1965 and she was a Girl Scout in our very own GSEWNI council. Susie participated in many activities including a trip to Japan with her troop. Her experience in Girl Scouting led her down many interesting paths in life. Susie’s life was cut short in March of 2002 when she was killed crossing a street in a crosswalk. The “Susie Forest” patch represents the movement her mother, Nancy MacKerrow, has started to plant trees in Spokane in honor of her daughter. Nancy’s goal – to have a whole forest of Susie Trees.
