Wichita — Ninety-three volunteers across 80 counties were honored by Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland recently at the 2013 Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast and Annual Meeting.
Girl Scouts spokesman Traci Naylor said Volunteer of Excellence awards went to Patty Fletchall, Great Bend, and Tammy Mitchell, Russell, at the April 6 meeting. The Volunteer of Excellence Award is presented each spring to Girl Scout volunteers who work directly with girls and display excellent service in delivering the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Beth Burke, Larned, and Edie McQuade, Russell, each received the Appreciation Pin. The Appreciation Pin is presented each spring to Girl Scout volunteers who help the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland make a significant impact in at least one geographic area.
“Our volunteers are made of compassion and creativity and we thank them for making it happen right here in Kansas,” said acting chief executive officer Marlo Dolezal. “Behind every Girl Scout, there is an amazing team of volunteers. What happens behind the scenes is so often overlooked, but because of those who make the Girl Scout experience a priority for the next generation, all of us can look forward to Girl Scouting for a very long time.”
