Council President and Board Chair, Jean Janssen, joined Girl Scout families and friends this month for the latest celebration of Girl Scout Gold Award recipients. Starting in 1916, the best and brightest have undertaken projects to improve their communities.
Girls who have successfully completed these projects over the years have earned the Golden Eaglet, Curved Bar Award, First Class awards, and what we now call the Gold Award. Though the award has had many names, it represents thousands of women over many generations who have helped shape the communities and world we live in.
We know that these girls will continue to do great things and inspire many along their journey. For more information about the Gold Award, or how you can earn yours, visit girlscouts.org.
