Huntsville Girl Earns Gold Award

Stephanie recently earned her Gold Award by starting a Book Club for Teens at the Huntsville Public Library. Her project was developed to create an environment in the community in which girls could safely express their ideas and opinions about different topics brought up in the books that were read.

Annie Goodwin of the Huntsville Madison County Public Library commented, “It is my opinion that Stephanie met a very crucial need within out public library: a teen –led program for teens. Members were engaged in book discussions and were proactively working together to make selections for future meetings. That Stephanie’s book club is sustainable and will continue to serve teens in the future is very promising for the further development of teen programming at the library.”

Stephanie is the daughter of Susan. She graduated from Westminster Christian Academy and currently attends the University of North Alabama.
