Girl Scouts Louisiana East honored its adult volunteers April 18 at the council’s annual meeting, with special recognition going to a select few.
Among those honored with council-level awards were Baton Rouge volunteers Carolyn Breaux, Jackie Daniels and Roena Wilford.
Breaux and Wilford, who were unable to attend the meeting due to previous commitments, were both recipients of the “appreciation pin,” which recognizes an volunteer’s outstanding service in delivering the Girl Scout leadership experience. They each received their award at a later date and location, a news release said.
Breaux, who is administrator for Baton Rouge Crestville Service Unit 116, has a record of bringing Girl Scouts to underserved girls in north Baton Rouge. Noted for “leading the charge” as she recruits girls, Breaux has been a role model for girls and adults for more than 30 years.
Wilford has given tirelessly to Baton Rouge Capitol Service Unit 119 in order to bring opportunities to the girls and leaders, including Kwanzaa celebrations, the release said. She enthusiastically works to help girls develop their abilities and learn new skills, and has consistently helped the service unit to reach and surpass its annual family giving goal.
Former council board Chairwoman and alumna Jackie Daniels, who was re-elected to the board as a member-at-large, received her 45 years of volunteer service pin.
