Eight Kern County Girl Scouts recently received the Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. The Girl Scout Gold Award is only open to girls in high school and requires them to complete a seven-step sustainable project to help solve a problem in their community.
Here are these amazing Girl Scouts and what they did:
Adrianna B. (top left) created a mobile training course for the ALPHA Canine Sanctuary
Breanna D. (next to Adrianna) worked with Bakersfield Memorial Hospital to make space on the NICU floor for mothers of premature babies or those who lost their babies.
Ireland E. (next to Breanna) developed curriculum for East Bakersfield High School to encourage students to have more empathy for seniors.
Courtney F. (next to Ireland) rebuilt fences for the horses at Bit-O-Heaven Rescue Ranch.
Lindsay G. (bottom left) designed a kiosk at the Gold Bug Mine.
Madalyn S. (right of Lindsay) created a "Tranquility Garden" for parents, friends, and family who use the Ronald McDonald House.
Ashley T. (right of Madalyn) renovated a family room at the Mission at Kern County
Hayley W. (right of Ashley) collaborated with DART (Desert Area Resource and Training) to teach disabled people how to dance.
Girls who earn their Gold Award distinguish themselves in the college application process, are able to earn college scholarships, and can enter the military one rank higher. For more information on the highest awards, visit www.girlscouts.org/en/our-program/highest-awards.html.
