GSSGC Celebrates 46 Recipients at 100th Anniversary of the Gold Award

On Saturday, April 9, 2016 it was the pleasure of the San Gorgonio Council to present forty-six young women with their Gold Awards. The ceremony took place in the ballroom of the historic Fox Theater in Redlands, Ca. It was there – beneath crystal and wrought iron chandeliers, draped tapestries of red and gold velvet, and art deco mirrors – that these amazing “Gold Girls” were honored.

These exceptional young women hail from all walks of life and represent the diversity of the Inland region. Their commonality is marked by their dedication to community and the issues that matter within them.

Gold Award girls are among a very elite group of young women who have earned this prestigious award, as less than 6% of Girl Scouts nationwide achieve this honor.

“Each of these recipients share special qualities that foreshadow a lifetime of success: service to others, hard work, perseverance, vision, teamwork and leadership. As a Gold Award recipient myself, I salute them and welcome them into the Sisterhood,” said Cynthia H. Breunig, President and CEO of the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council.  

According to the Girl Scout Research Institute’s (GSRI) report, The Power of the Girl Scout Gold Award: Excellence in Leadership and Life, Girl Scout Gold Award recipients receive greater lifetime benefits than their peers with regard to positive sense of self, life satisfaction, leadership, life success, community service, and civic engagement thanks to their experience in Girl Scouting, including earning their Gold Award.

Over the course of the last century, millions of Girl Scout alumnae have positively impacted their communities and the world in similar ways by developing creative and sustainable Take Action projects. Now, as we celebrate the Gold Award Centennial in 2016, we invite you to join us in “Celebrating 100 Years of Changing the World” by honoring these young women of distinction.
