Sarah Keith receives Girl Scout top honor at St. Philip’s
Job Keith, a Star Scout, accepts a Girl Scout Gold Award on behalf of his sister, Sarah Keith, at a May 18 ceremony at St. Philip’s College. Presenting the award were Teri Wenglein and Rose González Pérez, Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas board member and CEO, respectively.
Sarah Keith, a resident of Wilson County, was recently named the recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest recognition earned by Girl Scouts in grades 9-12 who display leadership skills, a sense of community, and commitment.
The 65- to 80-hour Girl Scout Gold Award offers each girl the opportunity to plan and implement a meaningful Take Action project that fulfills an ongoing need within the community. The project is an empowerment of the girl’s passion and personality, resulting in sustainable change.
Sarah knew her project would be difficult, but that didn’t stop her from doing what she loved for her community. She built and planted three raised-bed, wheelchair-accessible gardens at the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home in Floresville as part of her Golden Garden project, providing a stimulating outdoor activity for veterans. 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.
Sarah currently attends Centro de Audición y Adiestramiento Fonético in Brazil and plans to enroll in Pensacola Christian Academy.
Girl Scout Gold Award recipients from across the 21 counties that make up Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas will be honored in a statewide ceremony at the Texas State Capitol in Austin on June 14.
