Congratulations Gold Award Girl Scouts
Gold Award Scholarships
Girl Scouts are making a difference in their community. They are combating bullying in the schools, helping younger students excel in reading, science and math; reaching out to the homeless; engaging veterans and teaching children healthy behaviors.
This year, 182 Girl Scouts from the District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia were presented with the Gold Award, Girl Scouts highest honor, at the In Your Honor ceremony on May 12th, 2013 at Trinity Washington University. The Gold Award is the highest honor earned by a select group of Girl Scouts who have demonstrated superior leadership, organization and a higher commitment to community service.
Vice President Northrop Grumman, Sandra Evers-Manly, delivered the keynote address at the ceremony. She is charged with building, sustaining and leveraging the diversity at Northrop Grumman, and ensuring an inclusive workplace where everyone is valued.
16 Gold Award honorees were also recognized as recipients of Gold Award educational scholarships.
