Natalie White, a Claremore High School student, was recently honored as a recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award.
A member of Troop 77, White has been active in girl scouts for 13-years.
Gold Award Girl Scouts follow seven steps to earn their designation including choosing an issue, investigating and researching the issue, inviting others to take action with them, creating a plan, presenting the plan, taking action, and educating and inspiring others.
For her project, White chose to focus on Sexuality and Gender Alliance.
According to the Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, “Gold Award Girl Scouts don’t just change the world for the better, they change it for good. The Gold Award is earned by girls in grades 9–12 who demonstrate extraordinary leadership in developing sustainable solutions to local, national, and global challenges. Since 1916, Girl Scouts have answered the call to drive lasting, impactful change. The Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable.”
