Our team is dedicated to continuing their professional education and serving their community. That’s life with Perspective. Most often, their efforts take place quietly and behind the scenes, despite the enormous amount of time and energy expended. Sometimes they receive unexpected praise, and when they do, we’re thrilled to share the news.
This has been a big year for Lupe Camargo and her ongoing volunteer work. She has supported and advised the local Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus Pine Council in many capacities for more than a dozen years. In July, Lupe was elected to the board of directors for Girl Scouts of the USA, and is the first person from the AZ-Cactus Pine council to become a national board member in 50 years.
Lupe’s contributions also earned Honorable Mention for the Catalyst Award in the 2023 Invest in Others (IiO) Awards. The IiO Awards recognize the charitable work of financial advisors in communities across the country and around the world. It receives hundreds of nominations each year. This is the second year Lupe has earned an IiO award for her work with Girl Scouts.
She was deemed “an active stimulus for positive change and demonstrated an entrepreneurial vision for the nonprofit — elements at the heart of the Catalyst Award,” according to the IiO announcement.
“I’m most excited that, as a result of this award, the AZ-Cactus Pine Council will receive a $2,000 donation from Invest in Others,” Lupe said. “That money will help advance the wonderful work and programs benefiting young women in our community.”
