These girls completed a variety of service-based projects in order to be considered for the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn.
Frisbie pointed out that while these projects and awards demonstrate the winners’ commitment to serving their communities, their ability to help others has only just begun.
“You ladies have set quite a bar through your Gold Award projects. But trust in yourselves, trust me. You can push that bar higher, higher than you ever imagined,” Frisbie said. “Your strength will surprise you. Your abilities are limitless. The opportunity you all have to continue to raise the bar for future generations, for yourself it is imperative to our success.”
