Wilton High School seniors Garavi Angreji and Erin Bronner and junior Molly Thomas have earned the highest honor in Girl Scouting — the Gold Award.
Garavi and Erin are from Wilton Troop 50153 and Molly is from Wilton Troop 5055. All three were among 71 scouts honored at Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Gold Award Expo in North Haven, Conn., on June 4.
“I am beyond proud of our Girl Scouts as we celebrate another century of young women taking the lead and making a sustainable change in our communities,” Girl Scouts of Connecticut CEO Mary Barneby said in a press release.
“By earning the Gold Award, Girl Scouts set themselves apart as top achievers, and are incredible go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders. I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the future.”
Only 6% of Girl Scouts nationwide earn the Gold Award, which requires scouts in ninth through 12th grade to spend at least 80 hours researching issues, assessing community needs and resources, building teams and making sustainable impacts in their communities.
Receiving the award reflects scouts’ leadership and citizenship skills, setting them apart as community leaders.
