Local Girl Scouts win President’s AwardAugust 30th, 2013 by Sarah Spencer
The Girl Scouts-Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas council recently held their annual meeting and recognition ceremony on July 20th in Conway. The Monticello Ridge Service Unit was 1 of only 4 service units in the council to recieve the GSUSA President’s Award.
After receiving this award, they were named the top service unit in the council and presented with the “24 Karat Diamonds” Trophy. There are 70 service units in the council.
The President’s Award recognizes the efforts of a service-delivery team or committee whose exemplary service in support of delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience surpassed team goals and resulted in significant, measurable impact toward reaching the council’s overall goals. The Diamond’s Council takes this award a step further. The top Service Units to receive the President’s Award will have the chance to be chosen for the prestigious 24 Karat Diamond Trophy and named the Top Service Unit in the Council.
This yearlong achievement requires efficiency and dedication from every member of the Service Unit team, as well asu the wholehearted cooperation of troop leaders.
