Centennial Girl Scouts Earn Gold Award
Two Centennial teens were recently awarded the highest honor available in the Girl Scouts — the Gold Award.
According to the Centennial Citizen, Jordan Arnell and Megan King organized two very different community projects to earn the honors. Arnell earned her award for organizing, supplying and decorating for a library at St. Elizabeth’s School, which is a low-income, private school near the Denver Zoo. She is an avid reader and that’s what inspired her project. King started a recycling program at Jackson Lake State Park. She spent more than 85 hours planning and advocating the project.
Going for the Gold Award is meant to show a girl scout’s determination and dedication to improving herself and her community. According to the Girl Scouts website, “Girl Scout Gold Award recipients are part of an elite group of women who embody community leadership leaving behind a sustainable legacy.”
