Adult volunteers contribute in ways that directly affect the organization’s ability to function and serve the hundreds of Girl Scouts in Bradley County.
“We value our volunteers immensely and we’re excited to recognize their service to our council,” said Booth Kammann, chief executive officer of the Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians.
The council is recognizing the following volunteers for their outstanding service to Girl Scout troops in Bradley County: Stacey Ridgell, Kathye Richardson, Bethany Flatt, Florence S. Hays, Michael Callaway and Benton United Methodist Church.
“Our volunteers make a difference in the lives of girls every day. Even though the results of that impact may not be known or realized for years to come, we say thank you,” said Kammann. From all-night sleepovers to camping trips, these volunteers give of their time freely. Their patience, belief, understanding and unwavering commitment help the Girl Scouts achieve its mission Kammann asserts.
“The girls directly benefit from the involvement of these volunteers, as they become girls of courage, confidence and character.”
The award recipients were recently acknowledged at the council’s annual meeting.
