It is with great pleasure that we announce a record setting 30 service units who are recipients of the President’s Award for 2012 – 2013. A service unit is a team of volunteers working together in a geographic area providing support to troop leaders, implementing local events, recruiting and retaining girl and adult members and promoting the mission of Girl Scouts within their community.
The President’s Award is given by the Girl Scouts of the USA to service units who work towards achieving pre-established goals during a Girl Scout year. They have a highly functioning service unit team that work together to ensure Girl Scouts happens in their communities in a variety of ways and includes a diverse population. They are exemplary in every way!
Please join us congratulating the following service units for their outstanding achievements in moving our council forward with our goals!
