Kenmore West's Gaia Godinho Earns Girl Scouts Gold Award
Gaia Godinho, an 11th grader at Kenmore West High School, earned her Girl Scout Gold Award over the weekend, a huge honor from the national organization.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest honor among Girl Scouts, with only 6% earning the award nationally every year. Gaia was one of 31 girls in Western New York honored with the award during a ceremony on Saturday, June 3rd in Rochester, NY.
Gold Award Girl Scouts are defined as helping fix a problem in their community or making a lasting change in their world. Gaia has spent over 80 hours designing, planning, organizing, and building a permanent archery range at a local Girl Scout camp. This new range will be enjoyed by many Girl Scouts for years to come!
