Top Scouting Award
Wednesday, 08 May 2013

May 8-- Kimberly Warren, an Ambassador Girl Scout from Vidalia, received her Gold Award at the Girl Scout High Awards Ceremony in Savannah. 

The Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouting and requires a minimum of eighty hours devoted to a volunteer service project.

ImageFor her Gold Award project, Kimberly chose to help Animal Shelter animals and offer an extracurricular opportunity for students who are interested in animals.  Kimberly started a club at J. R. Trippe Middle School called "For the Love of Pets."  The club has met once per month, and they have had educational programs on the importance of spaying and neutering animals, taking care of pets in cold weather, avoiding items that are toxic to pets, how therapy dogs are trained and used, and how to start an aquarium.  Resource people who provided these programs for the club included Terry Yates, Dr. Chuck Faulk, Tiffany Moore, and Donna Beall.  The club also sponsored drives to provide food and blankets or towels for the shelter animals, and the club members also assisted SOAPS with their Spayghetti dinner.

Kimberly said that she is grateful for the encouragement and help she got from adults in the community for this project, including Mrs. Jody Haltom who served as her project advisor and who has supervised the monthly club meetings.  She is proud that the club has provided information for students on how to care of their own animals, and has also provided a means for the students to help the animal shelter.  She hopes that the club will continue each year to increase the projects they do to help animals and the Animal Shelter.
