2014 Volunteer of Excellence Award recipient
Beulah is an all-around excellent Girl Scout volunteer with a “never say no” attitude. As a Girl Scout volunteer for decades she has served in many capacities. Most recently she has been an active member of her Service Unit, Product Sales Manager, Camp Registrar for Resident Camp, and such a staple in our Odessa Girl Scout shop that she is often mistaken for a staff member. With all of this it is still a struggle to capture the heart of volunteerism that she exudes. For example, this cookie season she received a call to ask if anyone was available to meet in Van Horn to deliver cookies that were needed. Without hesitation, her and her husband answered that call for help and went to deliver the cases of cookies in their personal vehicle, with no expectation on anything in return. For all she has done for Girl Scouting, and for all that we know she will do for Girl Scouting in the future she is a Volunteer of Excellence.
The job of a Council Delegate is vital to the Council, but it is not a difficult or long-term position. The primary responsibility of a Council Delegate is to be informed and participate in the Annual Council Meeting or Community Meetings or Girl Scout Service Unit meetings. The Annual Meeting will be held on April 25, 2015 in Odessa, TX to elect new Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest board members, National Council Delegates and to carry out other Council business.
All registered Girl Scouts adults and girls age 14 and above, are encouraged to complete a Delegate Referral Form to be selected as a Council Delegate or Alternate. Please use the Delegate Position Description for information and the Delegate Referral Form to submit referrals by Thursday, March 12, 2015.
