BG scout gets the 'gold'
A Bowling Green girl is one of four local Girl Scouts who received the Girl Scout Gold Award Wednesday at the Premier in Toledo.
In addition, 20 local volunteers received adult recognitions this year from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio.
April Michaelis earned the Gold Award, which is the highest award that Girl Scouts in grades nine through 12 may earn.
The efforts put forth to earn this award express a special commitment by the recipient to herself, her community and her future.
The required steps for this award are chosen to help Girl Scouts develop 21st century skills, practice leadership, explore a need in the community and the world, and learn more about themselves.
Some criterion for the girls' project includes community involvement outside of the Girl Scout structure, being innovative, project sustainability and taking action to educate and inspire others.
Approximately 6 percent of Girl Scouts nationwide earn this award. At least 80 hours have been dedicated to a project over a time span of one to two years.
Girl Scout volunteer recognitions are given out annually to celebrate the commitment, enthusiasm and talents of trained volunteers who provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls and build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Volunteer recognition recipients from the area include Brandie Benington, Vicki Blanco, Jennifer Duwve, Melanie Friemoth, Kelly Garst, Cindy Marquis, Sheila Miller and Kelly Neceski, all of Perrysburg.
A variety of recognitions were presented, including regional awards from the Toledo Girl Scout Center, as well as national awards from Girl Scouts of the USA.
