Kyabram Girl Guide Caroline Keeton has achieved her Queen’s Guide Award, the peak achievement award for youth members of Guides Australia.
Undertaking the Queen’s Guide Award provides an opportunity to enhance personal development and attain greater self-awareness.
Senior Guides officials, including state commissioner Robinette Emonson, assistant state commissioner Lynne Emblin and region manager Raywin Jamieson travelled from as far as Chiltern, Melbourne and Mildura to attend the presentation and congratulate Caroline.
Kyabram Guides unit leader Sue Meeking read a piece written by Kyabram Guides which noted Caroline’s effort, some of the skills she has learnt and projects she has taken part in during her guiding career.
‘‘The Kyabram community benefited from Caroline’s efforts as she served meals to the needy, participated in environmental projects, informed younger guides and researched Guiding in our town,’’ Mrs Meeking said.
‘‘Caroline has become proficient in two musical instruments and improved her social and leadership skills while mixing with Guides of all ages across Victoria.’’
Kyabram’s latest Queen’s Guide Award recipient was described as a quiet achiever who understands what it means to be courageous and persistent.
Caroline gave a short speech on what completing the Queen’s Guide Award meant to her and said she had always wanted to see her name on the Kyabram Guide Hall Honour Board, ever since she started guides at eight years old.
She will receive her Queen’s Guide certificate on Saturday during a presentation at Government House in Melbourne.
