Local Girl Scouts unit recognized

The Girl Scouts of Central Indiana North Ripley Service Unit, Batesville, received the President’s Award for this year’s service, reports Allison Price, day camp director and public relations representative.

“Our service unit, which is a member of the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce, was honored because of high retention of both girl and adult Girl Scouts and adding in two Daisy troops for girls entering kindergarten,” she explains. “North Ripley shows support to its adult volunteers by sponsoring means for training and development, and support to its Girl Scouts by providing programs, activities, events and even a day camp for ages from kindergarten to senior year of high school.”

In addition to Price, the service unit team is comprised of nine other women: Carol Meyer, service unit manager; Kim Brockman, financial officer; Lisa K. Smith, product sales manager; Barb Gunselman, camp promoter, facilitator and finance committee member; Connie Miller and Casey Robinson, finance committee members; Jen Pate, day camp nurse; Bella Hall, troop organizer; and Sarah Crain, GSCI membership representative.

The local unit was also applauded for its Facebook page, titled Batesville Girl Scouts, connecting the community to local Scouts. According to her, “The North Ripley Service Unit is always accepting new members on both the girl and adult level, and information for this can be found on the Facebook page.”

Troop 80113 Girl Scouts obtained Bronze Awards, the highest honor for Junior Girl Scouts. Emily Morris, Isabel Smith, Kayla Meyer, Kaylee Williamson, Ciera Belter, Grace Nixon, Cadey Campbell, Elizabeth Loichinger and Abby Blomer made snack packs for families at Ronald McDonald House.

Five are well on their way to completing their Silver Award, the highest honor for Cadette Girl Scouts, according to Price.

Two graduating high school seniors, eight-year member Kiersten Morris and 12-year member Brittney Addison, are called Ambassador Girl Scouts. They are being rewarded for their years of service in the Batesville Girl Scouts with lifetime memberships in Girl Scouts of the United States.
