GIRL SCOUT VOLUNTEER GIVEN AWARD FOR 25-YEAR INVESTMENT IN GIRLS

Margery "Margy" Michaels Campbell is serious about her investment in Girl Scouting. And for 25 years she has led troops at all levels, served on the Utah Girl Scout Council board of directors, and chaired the finance committee and the fund development committee.

Working with business people and community leaders, she has raised about $45,000 annually to support camping, career exploration and other self-enrichment programs.She said she believes that by offering girls the opportunity for knowledge, growth and self-confidence, she can help them avoid problems like teen pregnancy, illiteracy, drug abuse, depression, suicide and youth unemployment.

She was honored for her efforts with a Carnation Silver Bowl and lauded as a role model for girls. According to Rita Inoway, volunteer center, Campbell has been a role model to the girls, and encouraged professional women to live up to their responsibilities of nurturing tomorrow's women leaders. "She is another example of an employed person who manages to order her life and activities to give volunteering a priority in her life," Inoway said.
