Local Girl Scouts Earn Prestigious Gold Award | PHOTOS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council has officially announced this year’s Gold Award recipients.

The Girl Scout Girl Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting and challenges girls ages 14 to 17 to initiate meaningful, sustainable change locally, nationally, and even globally through their own unique ‘Take Action’ projects.

Young women from Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Stanly, and Union Counties were recognized as this year’s recipients.

“The Gold Award recognition is the achievement of a lifetime,” said Tayuanee Dewberry, CEO of Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council. “These young ladies are the best of the best. This recognition is something many young girls aspire to achieve, yet only a small percentage accomplish. The Hornets’ Nest Council could not be prouder of this year’s recipients.”
