100 Women Awards - Celebrating a Century of Service
Alumnae whose extraordinary and trailblazing contributions have advanced the Girl Scout movement, and women and girls across the nation.
Marjorie Motch, Community Leader
Marjorie has devoted more than 60 years to community service, volunteering her expertise and talent on a local, national and international scale, especially in assisting children and young women to realize their full potential in life.
Her enthusiastic commitment has benefited national organizations such as Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), Junior League and United Way, as well as local groups including the Urban League Guild and Cincinnati Parks Foundation. In each case, she has ascended to the highest positions of leadership and recognition—she was board president of GSUSA from 1972 to 1975.
A founding member of the Olave Baden Powell Society, she served as president from 1993 to 1996. She also was the second vice chairman of the World Committee of World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Marjorie says that the friendships made with Girl Scout board and staff remain strong to this day. She continues to be involved on a local level with Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. As national board president, she enjoyed visits to the White House and to councils, but most importantly she liked being with “the girls.” Marjorie’s mantra is the Kahlil Gibran quote, “Work is love made visible.”
Marjorie has received numerous awards including the Great Living Cincinnatian Award from the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, William Howard Taft Medal from University of Cincinnati, The Enquirer Women of the Year and Woman of Distinction from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. She also received the WAGGGS medal in recognition of distinguished service to WAGGGS and International Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting.
