Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Recognizes Local Volunteer

Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) recently honored Girl Scout volunteer Linda Hill-Smith, for her many years of service to the organization. She received her award during the annual spring GSSJC recognition event.

Hill-Smith was honored with the Appreciation Pin. The Appreciation Pin is a national recognition awarded to registered adults who have given outstanding service above the requirements of the positions they have held. They must have served at least one geographic service unit or program delivery audience.

As a Reserve Ranger, Hill-Smith is willing and able to assist troops in having a safe and fun weekend at camp. During the Summer Carousel event, she helped with planning, mentoring host troops, and also volunteered her troop as host for two sessions. She is a key volunteer in her service unit.

"Linda is an inspiring and creative volunteer who is always ready to assist wherever she is needed," said Council volunteer Gina Hullum. "She makes you laugh, gives you ideas, is a good listener and can keep volunteers inspired by her energy and enthusiasm."
