Lexi Regensburger promotes HEALS for Girl Scout Gold

MADISON – Lexi Regensburger translated her concern for healthy children into a multifaceted service project to earn Girl Scouts’ Gold Award.

While Regensburger wanted to complete her Gold Award, she struggled to identify a project. She contacted MCS Development Office Coordinator Lee Shaw about district needs; HEALS was the answer.

Her project’s root cause was lack of advertisement and supplies for Health Establishments at Local Schools Inc. or HEALS mobile clinic. “They only had three patients in two months after opening in Madison City Schools,” Regensburger said. “We knew more students could benefit from the clinic.”

Regensburger first spoke at a Madison City PTA meeting to all MCS PTA presidents. They agreed to support her project and posted Regensburger’s PSAs to their social media platforms.

Several graphics with QR codes directed parents to the HEALS website and Regensburger’s videos, along with promoting her donation drive. Regensburger visited the HEALS clinic four times for video footage.

With the footage, Regensburger made three informational videos for potential patients and parents – a virtual tour of the mobile clinic and two interviews with HEALS staff and patients. She hosted a donation drive at two schools and her dance studio, along with posting 75 fliers at James Clemens High School, Liberty Middle School and The Dance Company.

“Once the drive was over, I took all the supplies to my house and sorted — over 580 items!” Regensburger said. “I met with the MCS tech team and my Project Advisor Lee Shaw. They agreed to post fliers on MCS’ website and put my project in MCS Weekly Update.”

“I want to go into the medical field so this project aligned perfectly. I believe every child should have access to a doctor and dentist. I’m so glad that I got to make this possible for more children in MCS,” Regensburger said.

“My project benefited parents, HEALS staff, school staffs and school nurses, and HEALS acquired more patients,” Regensburger said. “When I started, the clinic had only seen three patients in two months; in four months during my project, HEALS saw over 50 patients.”

In Girl Scout Troop 926, Regensburger praised “my wonderful leaders Jean Downs and Andrea Johnson. Jean has done a fantastic job leading our group; I’ve learned so much from her. She has taught us (about) leadership, communication and what a heart for serving can accomplish,” Regensburger said.

In her troop, Finley Koswoski helped tremendously. Others supporters were HEALS employee Sandra Diaz, The Dance Company Inc., Terrie Regensburger, Ryan Regensburger, Blake Regensburger, Patricia Collins, James Clemens HOSA club and residents who donated.

A senior at James Clemens High School, Regensburger participates in National Honor Society, HOSA and national honor societies for science, French and technology. She is a member of James Clemens Medical Academy.

Regensburger has studied for 14 years at The Dance Company. Devotion to reading lets her “enter a different world.”

This fall, she will major in nursing at the University of South Alabama. Regensburger has been accepted into Honors College and Early Acceptance Nursing School.

Her parents are Ryan Regensburger, a software engineer, and Terrie Regensburger, apparel designer and volunteer in PTA and Band Boosters.
