“I think that the most successful aspect of my project was that I established an activity at my church that will have a long-term impact on both the church members and the community outside of my church that will hopefully keep them active and in touch with each other.
“By earning the Girl Scout Gold Award,” said Trish Coghlan, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama, “Rebecca has become a community leader. Her accomplishments reflect leadership and citizenship skills that set her apart.”
The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting; it recognizes girls in grades 9 through 12 who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable Take Action projects. Since 1916, girls have successfully answered the call to go gold, an act that indelibly marks them as accomplished members of their communities and the world.
