Girl Scouts Honors Dedicated Volunteers

WICHITA – Twenty-seven Northern Kansas residents will be recognized at our Annual Meeting and Recognition Breakfast on April 7 with special awards from Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland for their extraordinary service as volunteers.

Every day, Girl Scout volunteers are helping girls blossom into their true potential by providing the environment they need to pursue the interests, causes, and leadership roles that matter most to them. Our dedicated volunteers ensure girls are standing up, standing out, and standing tall in every aspect of their lives in a girl-led and girl-only environment. We are proud to take time each year at our Annual Meeting and Recognition Breakfast to honor these community champions.

“Our volunteers dedicate their time and talents to empowering girls to take the lead and make a difference in their communities,” said Liz Workman, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland. “They are key to our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.”
