Girl Scouts' Highest Award
We are celebrating our 2015 Gold Awardees; girls who have earned the highest award in Girl Scouting by addressing a community need with a sustainable take action project. We will profile several at a time, but you can read about all 2015 Gold Award recipients here.
Amanda Lee, Quincy, founded a weekly food club to discuss health-related topics with students at her high school. She shared snack recipes with the club and distributed snack samples to the community.
Hailey Manduca, Bourne, promoted awareness of the rare genetic disorder Osteogenesis Imperfecta. She produced an educational documentary and let newly diagnosed patients know they are not alone by sharing her own experience.
Mary McCarron, Billerica, created a scavenger hunt to stimulate interest and build knowledge about her town. McCarron’s scavenger hunt is available at the Billerica Historical Society and the Billerica Public Library.
Aine McGonagle, Hingham, created a film to promote the ongoing need for help in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, and to generate awareness about racism and poverty, which are prevalent across the country.
