Girl Scouts of Orange County Honor Dr. Stout
The Spotlight award is for a volunteer within a Service Unit who previously received the Orange Owl Award and continues to give outstanding service to the Service Unit. Only one Spotlight Award is given out each year. Service Unit 102 covers the Cities of Fullerton and La Habra.
In bestowing the award, Maria Alderete, Troop Support Specialist with the Girl Scouts of OC noted that "as the Service Unit Cookie Booth Coordinator, Debbie encouraged booth participation and girl involvement in the Cookie program. She implemented The Cookie Squad to provide girls with a leadership opportunity by working with businesses to host cookie booths. She has also improved Service Unit communication with Troops by hosting Facebook Live meetings."
"I joined the Girl Scouts" said Dr. Stout, "to spend time with my daughter and to help insure an excellent program for the Troop. I enjoyed my time with the girls so much that I started volunteering at the Service Unit level as well. My goal was to have fun and winning awards was never part of my decision-making process. Having said that, it is very nice to be appreciated by the leadership of the Girl Scouts of OC for all I do on their behalf"
