Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council recognizes Woodlands volunteers
The Woodlands, Texas (May 31, 2012) –Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) recently honored The Woodlands volunteers Jennifer Sutter and Myrna Frost as well as Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church and Spring Creek Gateway Nature Center for their contributions to Girl Scouting.
"At 100 years old, I am often asked what has helped our organization endure over time," said GSSJC CEO Mary Vitek. "I believe the secret to our success is our volunteers. Volunteers represent 99 percent of the adult membership in Girl Scouts, and they work tirelessly to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place today and will, one day, become the future women leaders of our nation. We are proud to have these volunteers leading our young ladies into the next century of Girl Scouting."
Sutter and Frost both received the Honor Pin, given to a candidate that has provided outstanding service in two or more geographic areas or program delivery audiences in a way that furthers the Council’s goals. Sutter received the Honor Pin for her hard work in keeping Girl Scouting strong in The Woodlands' Catholic community by developing a patch and medals event and hosting a Catholic Girl Scout day camp last summer. Frost received the Honor Pin for her roles as a leader for troops, her service unit, day and twilight camps and other events.
Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church received the Walnut Plaque, a recognition given to a community building, business or non-registered adult who has given service to the Council or a service unit for many years. It is the second level of Community Awards.
Spring Creek Gateway Nature Center received the Certificate of Appreciation, a recognition given to a community building, business or non-registered adult who has given service to the Council or a service unit for several years. It is the first level of Community Awards.
GSSJC congratulates these volunteers, church and business on their contributions to Girl Scouting as the organization enters its second century of girl leadership.
