GSSI is pleased to announce that Amanda Bridewell of Harrisburg is the March Pearl of the Month. The Pearl of the Month Award recognizes a Girl Scout volunteer who has delivered service beyond expectations and helped to ensure that approximately 14,000 Girl Scouts in southern Illinois benefit from a premier Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Nominees must meet several criteria, including completion of all required training for his or her volunteer position as well as providing outstanding service to his or her Service Unit or the Council.
Amanda has earned the Pearl award for her excellent event coordination. She stepped up to coordinate the fall event for the Service Unit. The well-planned and organized event was a dance including a book exchange, meal, photo opportunity, and costumed parade of favorite book characters. Approximately 75 girls and 30 adults attended, had a great time and look forward to the next event Amanda plans.
