Dear Members, Volunteers, Parents, Alumnae,
and Friends of GSEP,
Each spring, it's my privilege to celebrate the accomplishments of our Council at the Annual Council Awards, which highlights the work of our dedicated volunteers, and the Achievement Ceremony, which recognizes the highest honors in Girl Scouting.
The highest Council level award for volunteers, the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania Award, is presented to up to three recipients who have served 10 years or more with a commitment and dedication that is remarkable and of extraordinary service to the entire Council community. This year's recipients were Margaret "Peggy" Labosh and Sue Donahue-Sinback. We are so grateful for their ongoing leadership, and congratulate all of the deserving honorees who were recognized at the Annual Council Awards Celebration.
At the Achievement Ceremony, we honored 38 Gold Award recipients for their outstanding acts of community service. These young women are extraordinary leaders who truly exemplify what it means to be a Girl Scout.
Each young woman identified a problem or need in her community and took action to address it. From creating an anti-bullying curriculum to raising awareness and support for local chemotherapy and heart disease patients, each girl made long-term positive change that will leave a lasting legacy on our Council.
You can view the 2014 Achievement Ceremony Program to learn more about the Gold Awardees and read about other Girl Scouts celebrated at the event -- including graduating seniors, top cookie sellers, and scholarship recipients.
Congratulations girls and thank you to the volunteers and parents who were instrumental to their success! I hope that all girls in our Council will aspire to earn this most prestigious honor.
Yours in Scouting,
