Senior YAC Chair Emily Faulkner earns highest Camp Fire Service Award: Wohelo

The Wohelo Award is the highest honor a youth member of Camp Fire may earn.  A symbol of personal growth, it is an intensive project designed by each individual.  Horizon Youth who complete the requirements demonstrate leadership, self-confidence, respect for others, organizational skills, and the desire and ability to make a difference in the world.  Only about 200 youth in the nation earn the Wohelo Award each year.

To earn the award, Emily completed four reflections from the New Horizons high school program book and read Wohelo: The History of Camp Fire.  The three issues of importance Emily chose for her Wohelo were:

a. Service to Camp Fire
b. Encouraging Youth in Tennis
3. Mission work through her Church Youth Group



Emily plans to attend Harding University to play tennis on scholarship and major in Kinesiology.
