Proud moment

I just have to report that my daughter has been awarded the Women of Distinction Award from the Girl Scouts for her Gold Project. She did a program on Japanese culture for kids last summer. She is one of 10 girls chosen in the United States. She will get to spend a week in Washington DC in Ocober. During the five-day event, honorees will job shadow and network with female mentors who are at the pinnacles of their professional career. They will also participate in professional development sessions led by experts. Sessions will focus on communications, money management, conflict resolution, and advocacy. Using these skills, honorees will meet with members of Congress and White House officials to discuss their community service projects and the current needs of youth.

That's pretty impressive I think, I couldn't be prouder. Here's to Sarah! Posted by Picasa

That is quite an honor! Completing the Gold Award is something to be proud of, but the additional experience will leave such an impression. Some of my leaders made a cross-stitch for me when I received mine and it still hangs on the wall--twenty years later.

I hope that she receives the recognition in her community she deserves for all her work.

Huge Achievement.

Congrats to Sarah and her rightfully proud mother. :)

My daughter has been working hard to complete her Bronze Award. I'm just hoping she stays in scouts long enough to be able to work on her Gold Award...let alone be selected for such a high honor.

I'm sure she'll go far!
