The Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains recently recognized Holly Green for earning the Girl Scout Gold Award. In carrying out their Gold Award project, girls are asked to choose a community issue and take action to address that issue with an eye toward long term impact and sustainability.
Holly created a nature trail in Camp Holland, a self-guided trail with plant markers to identify the plants that are native to the area, allowing anyone who uses Camp Holland to discover the beauty of the local plants. It will be open all year round and available for educational and fun learning opportunities for many years to come.
“Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award designation is truly a remarkable achievement, and Holly exemplifies leadership in all its forms,” said Becky Burton, Girl Scounts of Texas Oklahoma Plains CEO. “She saw a need in her community and took action. Her extraordinary dedication, perseverance and leadership is making the world a better place.”
By earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, a girl becomes a community leader. Her accomplishments reflect leadership and citizenship skills that set her apart. In recognition of this achievement, some universities and colleges offer scholarships unique to Gold Award recipients, and girls who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced rank.
