SAN DIEGO – During its recent Volunteer Celebration, Girl Scouts San Diego honored Fallbrook volunteers Tanisha Garvin, Monica Lang and Lis Phillips for their contributions to girl scouting.

Garvin received the Honor Pin for providing outstanding service in more than one service unit. An exceptional trainer for the Girl Scouts San Diego council, she was honored for empowering volunteers in the Fallbrook Service Unit and surrounding North County communities.

Lang was presented with the Appreciation Pin for bolstering the Girl Scout Mission in Fallbrook. As service unit communications chair, she was honored for creating a resource center and overhauling online tools to make it easier for Fallbrook troops to reserve materials and equipment for their Girl Scout adventures.

Phillips received the Volunteer of Excellence award for partnering with girls to deliver the Girl Scout program. An expert at cultivating community for the Girl Scouts of Fallbrook, she was honored for planning eight events each year, highlighting Girl Scouts at local parades and community-based service opportunities.

"We deeply appreciate the achievements of this year's Volunteer Celebration honorees," Girl Scouts San Diego CEO Carol Dedrich said. "Their support is key to our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place."

Emceed by KUSI News co-anchor and Girl Scout alum Ginger Jeffries, the Volunteer Celebration took place at the San Diego Hilton Resort on Mission Bay. The awards program commends individuals who were selected by their peers for going above and beyond the duties of their volunteer positions.
