Mrs. Lori Mulligan is known by many in Greenwich as a math teacher, but on Tuesday after school she switched hats to take up her role as North Mianus School Girl Scout Daisy leader for Troop 50126.

After school, Mrs. Mulligan, along with Assistant Troop Leader Samantha Milligan-Guzman and Mrs. Mulligan’s daughter Blair from NMS grade 3 Brownie troop 50376, and all 20 Daisies in the troop headed to Tod’s Point to earn a clean-up badge.

The girls were each provided a pair of rubber gloves and a bag. The girls drew some inspiration from the sunshine and unseasonably warm temps, and picked the beach clean of debris. According to Mrs. Mulligan, one of the girls treasured her trash so much she was tempted to bring it home to show her mother.

courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
