Two receive Honor Bee Award
Krislee Twiner and Micaela Cornett were the first to receive the Honor Bee Award in the Young Women organization of the Maryville Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for completing all the service requirements and for previously receiving the Young Womanhood in Recognition Award. The Honor Bee Award is given to a young woman between the ages of 12-18 who completes 40 hours of service or more and helps other young women achieve their Young Womanhood Recognition Award.
Twiner volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore over the summer and participated in service activities at the Especially for Youth program, a summer camp for LDS teens ages 14-18.
She is the daughter of Chris and Kallee Twiner of Maryville, a senior at Maryville High School, participates in the orchestra, and is the president of the Key Club. Twiner plans to serve a full-time mission for the LDS church when she turns 19 years old.
Micaela Cornett also volunteered over 40 hours of service which included volunteering at the Salvation Army’s soup kitchen, working with a young woman on her personal progress program value project, giving community service with the Interact club at her school and rereading the Book of Mormon. Cornett is the daughter of Justice and Ann Cornett of Maryville and a senior at William Blount High School. She plans to attend Pellissippi State in the fall and continue her education at East Tennessee State University to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.
