Girl Scout Gold For Kailua

Kailua’s Girl Scout Troop 709 struck gold this spring as three members received their Gold awards during an April 25 ceremony at Central Union Church. The award is considered the highest honor in Girl Scouting, and only about 6 percent of eligible members nationwide ever achieve it.

Sisters Alexa and Presley Anderson partnered up on a Fine Arts Bonanza project to present grade 4-6 students with healthy outlets for their time and energy via a Kailua workshop on playing instruments. They also created a music resource guide, a video and a manual for duplicating the workshop.

Hayley Dietrich planned and hosted the first Elementary School Science Olympiad since 2009, offering fun science experiments led by Dietrich and her team at Le Jardin Academy.

“The Gold Award recognizes a Girl Scout’s commitment and service to the community,” explained Girl Scouts of Hawaii CEO Shari Chang. “We are extremely proud of their achievements and are confident they will continue to be exemplary leaders throughout their lives.”
