On February 28th, about 175 people gathered for the Illowa Council Recognition Dinner. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Venturing Leadership Award and recognition of several Scouters who also serve as Venturing leadership with the Silver Beaver. The VLA is presented to a Venturer who exhibits exceptional service to Venturing in Illowa Council. This year’s recipient was Devan Terry, who currently serves as the VOA President.
She has served in many leadership positions in her crew and District VOA, served as V. P. of communications for the council VOA before taking her current position. She is also the past V. P. of Admin. for Central Region Area 3 VOA where she received the Area 3 VLA.
Devan fulfills the commitment to teaching others by being on staff for summer camp at LT, BALOO Cub training, Univ. of Scouting and other council and Area 3 programs. While doing all this, she is a senior at Erie H. S. and takes classes at Blackhawk College preparing for a major in Library Sciences.
