“I think it really helped those girls to see that other, older girls had been healthy through middle and high school, so they could do it too. I think it really boosted the younger girls’ self esteem and helped them look to a bright, healthy future,” said Kaitlin.
“By earning the Girl Scout Gold Award,” said Trish Coghlan, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama, “Kaitlin 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.
