DIANA DOLL RECEIVES AWARD FOR WORK WITH THE GIRL SCOUTS
Diana Doll recently received the Volunteer of Excellence Award from the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois. This award recognizes volunteers who have contributed outstanding service and dedication on behalf of the organization. Diana said her favorite part of working with the Girl Scouts is watching the girls’ interpersonal relationships and friendships grow. Oftentimes for teenagers, the most important people in their lives are their peers. Diana hopes she has played a role in helping them nurture their friendships with one another and encouraging them to find friends who help them make good decisions and become better young women. In the Summer of 2014, she hopes to take her troop to Florida to swim with the dolphins.
