At the 30th Annual Governor’s Volunteer Awards Ceremony in Cedar Falls, June 25, Lisa Shook received the Individual Governor’s Volunteer Award for her long time support of Girl Scouts and service to her community.
Girl Scout service unit director for Service Unit 615, troop leader, product manager, leader mentor and school organizer and just a few of the volunteer ‘hats’ Lisa Shook wears. Because of her dedication to volunteering, Jenna Engel, Waterloo membership manager nominated Lisa Shook of Dunkerton for the Individual Governor’s Volunteer Award.
Lisa’s volunteerism extends beyond Girl Scouts. For a couple years, Lisa partnered with a different organizations and put together care packages for troops overseas. In the care packages, Lisa includes Girl Scout cookies and Girl Scout Fall Product (like candies and nuts) along with a few other items. She does this on her own time and she uses her own resources to send the packages over to the troops. This year, Lisa sent 170 care packages.
Did you know more than 38% of people who call the Cedar Valley home volunteered last year. And Iowa is 3rd in the national for volunteerism? Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds mentioned this in her address to the honorees.
Congratulations Lisa for being recognized by the state of Iowa in honor of your service to your community and thank you for supporting Girl Scouts!
