this being her first year with our Ship and with being our youngest member,

of our Ship. She has

Competition, and has accumulated the most hours (over 50) in our Ship’s
Work Hours and Community Service Hours Competition.
She has been diligent in her work as Ship’s Yeoman.
She is the only member of our Ship to have earned the U.S. Heritage
Gold Award, and one of our few members to earn her Small Boat Handler Bar
during our Long Cruise this past summer.
She has also advanced one rank during the year.
Her school notebook cover is decorated with photos from various Sea
Scout activities she has attended, and is so talkative about Sea Scouting
that one of her teachers has given her the nickname of “Sailor”.
She is the first female to have ever gotten through every single
element of the York-Adams Area Council’s Challenging Outdoor Personal
Experience (COPE) course. She
was also a volunteer instructor at our companion Troop 25’s Scout Parent
Basic Training Course.

as staff at the Multiple Sclerosis Bikeathon this past summer.
