Two Bay High School Students Earn Girl Scout Gold Award

Posted: Updated:

Two Bay High School students set their goal on the "gold." All of their hard work paid off Sunday, when they received the Girl Scout Gold Award at a ceremony.

The gold award is an incredible achievement for a Girl Scout and most prestigious awarded to any girl in the organization. It requires an extensive service project.

Callie Mills and Genevieve Smith were recognized after spending more than a year on a community service project.

"They are expected to complete a project that takes about 80 hours, and for most of them, it's more than 80, and for their families, it's probably another 80," said Peggy Geil-Beem, the Panhandle Council President.

Genevieve chose to help out her church's backpack buddies program, which provides food to children on the weekend. While, Callie helped design and landscape a new outdoor area at her church.

Callie and Genevieve said this is just the beginning of their community service. They hope to volunteer for years to come.
