Joining Business Honor Society

Forty-one students have been inducted into  the Harborfields High School Business and Marketing Honor Society recently. Additionally, 13 students from the Business and Entrepreneurship Academy were

Honored for Service to Girl Scouts

The Girl Scouts of Suffolk County recently  honored Carol Keil of Huntington  for her 50 years of service at its annual Volunteer Appreciation & Awards Dinner.

The Girl Scouts also created a new award in her honor, the Carol Keil Service Award.

She says she was never able to be a Girl Scout growing up. Instead, she got involved when her daughters wanted to join the Girl Scouts.

“When my second oldest daughter was a Girl Scout and the troop leader was leaving, I said I would take her place as long as another mom would do it. Today that mom is my best friend.” Carol led that troop for 16 years and later rose to leadership positions in Suffolk County and at the Girl Scouts of USA.

The evening honored 300 other volunteers for their service to the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County.

“We are indebted to the volunteers who help our girls grow into inspired young women,” said Tammy Severino, CEO, Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “Volunteers help our Girl Scouts learn to appreciate the outdoors, develop life skills, leadership and entrepreneurial skills as well as pursue STEM and the arts.”
