Stephanie Neill was recently recognized by the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska with a 10 Years of Volunteer Service Pin.

“The volunteers being recognized were nominated by our members, girls and adults, and our Girl Scout council staff for the difference they make in the lives of our girls,” said Fran Marshall, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska. “The gifts they make to our organization are priceless. Our volunteer award ceremonies are a small way for us to thank, celebrate and acknowledge them.”

Girl Scout volunteers provide girls a safe place of their own to challenge themselves, explore the outdoors, develop leadership skills and improve their communities. With the encouragement of volunteers, Girl Scouts grow into the successful leaders and change-makers of the future.

The annual awards recognize volunteers for their achievements and contributions to the girls they serve. The ceremony was held at Ralston High School in April, which is also Volunteer Appreciation Month.
