Scott County's Distinguished Young Woman of the Year Olivia Triplett is presenting the "Be Your Best Self" program at the Forest Public Library on Tuesday, January 22 at 6:00 p.m. Triplett will be discussing five points of being 1) healthy, 2) ambitious, 3) involved, 4) responsible, and 5) studious. The program, aimed at teens, is offered in connection with the library’s newly-formed TAB organization. Triplett serves on the library’s Teen Advisory Board and part of this service includes planning programs for teens.
Brandi Parker, Youth Services Librarian, explains that the active members of the Teen Advisory Board must meet certain requirements to qualify for a $1000 Friends of the Forest Public Library scholarship to be awarded in May 2019. Parker explains that members must attend monthly meetings, assist in planning and participate in programs, and volunteer in the library to be considered eligible for the scholarship.
Triplett, the daughter of O.B. and Ingrid Triplett, attends Scott Central Attendance Center. She is an All-A Honor Roll student and a member of the Beta Club. She enjoys exercise, photography, piano, cooking, and hunting. Triplett states, “I want to be more of a leader in the community, make the library a fun place for teens, and make a difference!”
