Three girls from the Wilderness Road of Kentucky Girl Scout Council Troop 894 earned their Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. The award requires girls to complete a project with at least 80 hours of service time, among other requirements. All three girls also earned the Bronze and Silver Awards in previous years of scouting.
Naomi Clayton, daughter of Kim Edwards and Thomas Clayton, completed her award project last summer by conducting a free swim clinic at Douglass Pool for a dozen children ages 5-7. She also received a grant to fund a donation of kickboards and pool toys to the pool. Naomi just completed her junior year at Sayre School.
Maggie Pool, daughter of Christopher and Kathleen Pool, completed her award project in December. She completed a storm drain awareness program in two Lexington neighborhoods. She painted four storm drain covers and provided information to neighbors about the importance of keeping debris and harmful substances out of storm drains. She also met with several school Green Teams to talk about the project. Maggie just completed her junior year at Bryan Station High School.
Megan Soult, daughter of Mike and Allison Soult, completed her award project in May. She taught middle school students how to spin flags for the high school marching band color guard. Megan just completed her sophomore year at Bryan Station High School.
