Volunteers are the heart of the Girl Scout organization and every year, Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont (GSCP2P) honors those exceptional volunteers who have gone above and beyond- in time, skills and responsibilities.
Alice Gray of Lexington was recently honored during the annual adult awards ceremony as part of the 2017 GSCP2P Annual Meeting in Statesville. Gray received the Appreciation Award, which recognizes a registered adult Girl Scout who has delivered outstanding service and contributes to the achievement of the council’s goals in at least one service area.
As a Service Unit Product Sales Specialist, Gray provides effective and timely communication with Troop Product Sales volunteers. She stays current with all the changes introduced and implemented by our annual sales, and encourages new leaders and boosts their self-confidence to successfully complete the program. She attends annual product sales trainings with an attitude of humility and eagerness to learn. She does whatever is necessary to support the local cookie cupboard, often picking up cookies for cupboard-to-cupboard transfers. In addition to her product sales position, she impacts the lives of girls by holding breast cancer awareness workshops at Lexington Hospital for local troops. As a member of the council’s Gold Award Committee, Alice provides mentorship to many girls as they work towards their Girl Scout Silver and Gold awards.
“Every volunteer helps create memorable and exceptional experiences for our girls,” said GSCP2P CEO Lane Cook. “Whether it’s leading a troop every week, exploring nature at camp, facilitating a LEGO robotics workshop or planning trips so girls can experience new things, our volunteers serve as positive role models every day.”
GSCP2P relies on volunteers to help deliver the Girl Scout program to girls throughout their 40 counties and would not be able to fulfill their mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character without them.
