Rosemary Gruber from Belleville has received the Thanks Badge II for her exceptional volunteer service to Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois. The Thanks Badge II is the highest adult volunteer award and honors a previous Thanks Badge recipient who has continued to provide exemplary service in a leadership role, resulting in a measurable impact that benefits the total council or entire Girl Scout movement.
“Rosemary has been in Girl Scouts for 50+ years. She has had so much experience in teaching adults and girls how to be a true Girl Scout. She is the reason I became a leader," said fellow volunteer Jodie Herbstritt.
