Few people have as much knack and enthusiasm as Lisa Kaye Anderson does for selling Girl Scout cookies.
A daughter of Lynn and Pat Anderson, Salt Lake City, Lisa Kaye was recently named the top seller of Girl Scout cookies at a Girl Scout Council-sponsored banquet at Salt Lake Community College.The council serves approximately 14,000 girls in Utah, Fredonia, Ariz., and Wendover, Nev., with nearly 4,000 of that number participating in the annual cookie drive. Eighty-six other girls also were honored.
Lisa Kaye sold 4,200 boxes of cookies this year, winning her the title of top cookie seller for the fourth consecutive year.
Other top sellers honored include Catherine Nichole Mellen, 11, Salt Lake City, second place, 1,956 boxes; Rebekah Thomas, 13, Salt Lake City, third place, 1,713 boxes; and Melanie Shaff, 14, South Weber, Weber County, honorable mention, 1,450 boxes.
Lisa Kaye, who will be a junior this fall at Granite High School, has sold 15,477 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in her five years of Girl Scouting and cookie drives.
The Girl Scout not only has won praises of leaders, but she helped put her Scouting unit, Troop 226, at the top of cookie sales. Led by Caralin Butler, the troop members sold an average of 1,176 boxes of cookies.
