Gold Awardee Creates Memory Wall in Winfield

Girl Scout Ambassador Jennifer of Winfield recently earned her Gold Award by creating a Memory Wall in Winfield City Park in hopes of raising awareness of Girl Scout efforts in her community. Jennifer also made stepping stones leading up to the wall with the Girl Scout Law engraved into them. Jennifer learned through this project that she needed to be more patient – especially with brick-laying! Jennifer is 18-years-old and attends Auburn University and is the daughter of Ed & Rachel.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is highest level of Girl Scout achievement. This award recognizes the Girl Scout Senior's or Ambassador's commitment to herself, her community, and her future. The girl who goes for the Gold embraces challenges, achieves excellence, and works diligently to make the world a better place, in her own unique way.

Girls who earn their Gold Award are also recognized by the President of the United States, the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Armed Services, state legislatures, colleges and universities for admission and scholarship opportunities, and the American Legion.
