Local organization distributes Red Apples

Two Ketchikan residents and a local group were honored Wednesday during the annual Delta Kappa Gamma Red Apple Awards.

The recipients are Karen Taylor, Bob McClory and the Ketchikan Younglife organization.

Taylor has been involved as a Girl Scouts volunteer for more than two decades, including as a troop leader, camp counselor and cookie manager.

McClory, a school counselor, was honored in part for the time he has volunteered to organize the state Distinguished Young Women scholarship competition, which takes place in Ketchikan each year.

Ketchikan Younglife participants volunteer their time to work with local teenagers, getting to know them and building positive relationships.

The local Delta Kappa Gamma chapter focuses on distributing books to children and adults, and providing scholarships for local students. Its Red Apple Award program started in 1999 as a way to honor volunteers.
