Noteworthy contribution to Ship:

Despite this being her first year with our Ship and with being our youngest member, Amanda Rose Klinedinst has been the most enthusiastic and energetic member of our Ship.  She has accumulated the most points in our Ship’s Uniform and Attendance Competition, and has accumulated the most hours (over 50) in our Ship’s Work Hours and Community Service Hours Competition.  She has been diligent in her work as Ship’s Yeoman.  She is the only member of our Ship to have earned the U.S. Heritage Gold Award, and one of our few members to earn her Small Boat Handler Bar during our Long Cruise this past summer.  She has also advanced one rank during the year.  Her school notebook cover is decorated with photos from various Sea Scout activities she has attended, and is so talkative about Sea Scouting that one of her teachers has given her the nickname of “Sailor”.  She is the first female to have ever gotten through every single element of the York-Adams Area Council’s Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience (COPE) course.  She was also a volunteer instructor at our companion Troop 25’s Scout Parent Basic Training Course.
