The following young women from 92129 are currently pursuing their Gold Award, the highest honor achievable in Girl Scouts. It involves identifying a need in the community and implementing a project to fulfill that need. Congratulations to these ladies on all their hard work!

Elisa Jimenez

Project Title: Pearl Pals
Elisa lead recreational classes at senior centers and homes. Her grandmother, Pearl, passed away a few years ago, but before she died she had spent some time in an assisted living home. Elisa noticed how lonely the other residents were every time she visited, since they weren’t always visited. Because of this, she was motivated to focus her project on senior citizens
as a memento of her grandparents, who have
all passed away.

Jenna Dangelewicz

Project Title: Fitness & Nutrition Project
Jenna went to the Boys & Girls Clubs this summer for a total of six weeks. Each week she visited three different clubs – two in Escondido and one in Poway. She did art projects with the third graders, like drawing the MyPlate, and doing a watermelon craft. They also made healthy snacks some weeks like a strawberry smoothie or Ants on a Log. The second half of each hour and a half they would play fitness games such as Simon Says. Next, Jenna will hold two workshops with middle school girls in this community.
