Makenzie Keiser is recognized for the 2018 Governor’s Hometown Award for Environmental Stewardship, Nov. 6, at the Edwardsville City Council meeting for her efforts in the Girl Scouts.

Keiser recently earned the Girl Scouts Gold Award, the highest earned in the Girl Scouts. She earned this award for her final project that helped teach children in Edwardsville how to create vegetable gardens and grow vegetables. Keiser worked with the YMCA Early Childhood Development Center in Edwardsville to design and develop three raised gardens at the YMCA's children playground. She taught students not only the importance of vegetables and how they are cultivated, but also how to start growing them from seeds.

“If you teach children how to grow vegetables, they will always have food,” said Keiser.

Keiser is a poolee with the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program with Recruiting Station St. Louis and is set to leave for Marine Corps recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina, Nov. 13.

The Delayed Entry Program incorporates recruits into the inactive reserves and includes an agreement to report for active duty, most often called “shipping out to boot camp”, at a specific date in the future.

“Being a Girl Scout has taught me to be confident in the choices i make and adapt to, and overcome any obstacles in my path,” said Keiser. “It has taught me to be a better leader and to be fearless in any situation. In the Marine Corps there will be times that I will have to use my knowledge and experience in order to get past an obstacle. I plan on using what the Girl Scouts have taught me in order to be the best Marine that I can be.”
