Camille B. Chambless of MLK Troop Receives Girl Scout Gold Award

Congratulations to Ms. Camille B. Chambless of Girl Scouts of Western New York MLK Troop #30583.

On Saturday, June 2 she received the esteemed Girl Scout Gold Award in a special ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency in Rochester, NY. The Gold Award is the highest given within the Girl Scouts of the USA. Only 5.4% of girl scouts will earn this honor. Camille earned her award by creating and maintaining the Give and Take Clothes Closet, a free clothing giveaway run out of Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, 400 Northampton Street.

The closet is open every Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday and provides free, gently used clothes for men, women and children. In addition to being an active girl scout in the MLK Service Unit for 13 years and being active in her church, Camille is a senior who will graduate from Hutch Tech high school this month. She plans to attend Buffalo State College to pursue a degree in Education. Her dream is to teach math one day at her alma mater.

Camille is thankful to God, and her support team who encouraged her not to give up; her parents (Pastor Jeffrey and Sister Clarisse Chambless); her grandmother (Della Williams); all of her troop leaders and especially Ms. Etta Howell. To God Be The Glory!
