Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast honors volunteers in Milwaukee County

May 4, 2014

MILWAUKEE—Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast (GSWISE) honored volunteers in April for their exceptional service and commitment to building girls of courage, confidence and character in southeast Wisconsin. Volunteers from throughout the region were recognized at the GSWISE Annual Meeting on April 8.

Top honors included:

• Marion Chester Read Award: Recognizing previous Thanks Badge of Thanks Badge II honorees who demonstrate noteworthy volunteerism, model the Girl Scout spirit and share their skills and talents. The award, named after Marion Chester Read, is a tribute to the legacy of the Chester Read Family and specifically Marion, who continues to inspire others by her support of Girl Scouting and the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast.
• Thanks Badge II: Recognizing an adult member who has received the Thanks Badge and whose outstanding service resulted in outcomes that benefit the total council or the entire Girl Scout organization.
• Thanks Badge: Awarded for service impacting the council or the Girl Scout movement as a whole.
• Honor Pin: Recognizing outstanding service given to two or more geographic areas.
• President’s Award: Honoring a service area, program delivery team or committee which has significantly contributed to one or more of the council goals.

Awardees from Milwaukee County include:

• Marion Chester Read Award: Pat Hartz (Brown Deer) has earned over the years the reputation as the “go to” volunteer for program center events. This past year she taught girls to sew, helping them make sundresses to be sent to girls in need in Haiti. These dresses needed to be finished with neck and armhole binding so Pat took all 200 dresses home and finished them. She is also a Girl Scout Daisy adult learning facilitator and continues to be very active on the GSWISE Historical Committee.

• Honor Pin:
o Lisa Marshall’s (Oak Creek) commitment to the Girl Scout Cookie Program is energizing. She currently runs the large Oak Creek delivery site and cupboard, has hosted a cookie rally, conducted product sales trainings, ran enrichment sessions at kick off events, and spoke at Regional Conferences. Lisa still finds time to be a member of the cookie support team answering e-mail questions from volunteers.
o Wendy Nielson (Franklin) runs the Franklin cookie delivery site, distributing thousands of cases of cookies and hundreds of cases of nuts and candy. She is a member of the cookie support team, answering hundreds of urgent e-mail questions from cookie captains. Wendy hosted a cookie rally this year and still finds time to count forms at cookie kickoffs and help with the yearly merchandise inventory at the resource centers.
