Top honor awarded to local Girl Scout
Victoria Li Tovar is a junior at Floresville High School and a member of Girl Scout Troop 559. She designed a prayer vigil and a scrapbook in Sacred Heart Catholic Church for military families. The vigil has a plaque of the Holy Family along with coins from every branch in the military including the POW coin. The vigil sits at the St. Joseph’s altar in Sacred Heart Church.
For her efforts, Tovar has earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, which is the highest recognition earned by Girl Scouts in grades 9-12. Leadership skills, sense of community, and commitment are developed by earning the Gold Award. “Going for Gold” sets the foundation for a lifetime of active citizenship and creates strong leaders of tomorrow.
Girl Scouts is pleased to honor this young woman, who has shown what it is to be a girl built of courage, confidence, and character. Gold Award recipients from across Texas were honored in a state-wide ceremony in Austin on June 13.
Former Girl Scouts are invited to re-connect with the organization that has impacted more than 50 million women. Information on joining the Girl Scout Alumnae Association and Girl Scouting’s 100th Anniversary may be found at girlscouts-swtx.org.
