Girl Scout Named VFW’s Scout of the Year
Lorisa Schoenbeck, a senior at Webster High School, was honored as the VFW’s Scout of the Year on October 5th in Chamberlain, SD.
This award is open to members of a Boy or Girl Scout Troop, Venturing Crew, or a Sea Scout Ship. Girl Scout candidates must have received the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can achieve, as well as demonstrated exemplary citizenship in school, Scouting and community.
“Girl Scouts has been a huge part of my life. Starting as a kindergartener and now being a senior; it has taught me many life skills and shaped the person I am today. The experiences I’ve had are irreplaceable. It has expanded my horizons to places I can’t even imagine,” Schoenbeck said.
