Girl scouts honored for achievements

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Girl scouts and volunteers were honored for their achievements during their annual 2015 awards ceremony.

Each year the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia give out gold and silver awards .

We spoke with Ayani Simpson who received a silver award for volunteering at the boys and girls club.

She says this will help her when she looks for a job.

"I'm applying for a job and they already know me at the boys and girls club and the YMCA because of doing my project so they already think I'm like a good person to get the job," says Ayani Simpson.

"Oh I'm elated today. I'm always elated when we do this every year. This is a yearly celebration and of course our volunteers get to come together and the girls get to see what our volunteers are doing so the staff is always involved as well," says Volunteer Manager Valerie Ellis.

Ellis says they work with girl scouts to build courage, confidence, and character.
