Two Youths Earn Young Womanhood Recognition Award

By Contributed Article

Lauren Ward, President Bob Blackburn, & Whitney Anderson
Whitney Anderson and Lauren Ward were recently presented the “Young Womanhood Recognition Award” during worship services at their church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Whitney Anderson is the daughter of Corey and Patricia Anderson all residents of Signal Mountain, TN. Whitney is a junior at Baylor school and participates on the varsity volleyball team. Lauren Ward is the daughter of Steve and Deseret Ward and resides on the mountain. Lauren is a sophomore at Girls Preparatory School and participates on the varsity rowing team.

“Earning this award is quite an accomplishment,” stated President Bob Blackburn. “Both of these girls have worked very hard to earn this special recognition.”

To receive the Young Womanhood Recognition a young woman completes six experiences and one ten-hour project for each of the following seven values:
Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice and Accountability, Good Works, & Integrity. This program begins when a young lady enters the Young Women’s program at the age of 12 and works at her own pace on the above requirements.

Lauren’s most memorable project was making a quilt this past summer. “It was fun because I learned a skill that I can continue and do more of in the future.” Whitney most enjoyed building a dock on the pond in her family’s back yard. Whitney stated, “I got to work with my Dad and I learned a lot about the nuts and bolts of construction but mostly I enjoyed just spending time with my Dad.”
