Three girls received the Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) 2017 Gold Award for their community-based health and healing related projects. This is the highest and most prestigious award in Girl Scouting, comparable to the Boy Scouts of America’s Eagle Scout rank. They include Allison Daugherty, of Scottsdale, Ashley Hale, of Glendale, and Klara Olcott, of Glendale.

Girls that pursue their Gold Award aspire to transform an idea and vision for change into an actionable plan with measurable, sustainable and far-reaching results. A young woman that has earned her Gold Award has become a community leader in the truest sense. Her accomplishments reflect outstanding leadership and civic engagement.
