On May 2, the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia awarded the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award to seven teens during an awards ceremony at the Elks Lodge 183 in Savannah. Ash Lee Brown of Midway was among the award recipients.
Brown is the daughter of Charles Brown and Renee Carlton-Brown. She is a Girl Scout ambassador in Troop 30172 and a senior at Liberty County High School. Her Gold Award project was titled, “Kid’s Kafe.”
Brown worked with the project manager at an after-school facility for children in low-income housing to renovate the facility and improve the tutoring program. She arranged for a donation of several computers with current software from the Liberty County Board of Education, and obtained additional educational materials for the facility. Brown enlisted the help of classmates and put together a team of volunteers who provided individual and small-group tutoring for the children who visited the Kid’s Kafe.
Parents of the children who visit the Kid’s Kafe have told Brown they notice their children are showing more interest in school and they enjoy visiting the renovated facility and bringing their friends.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. The honor recognizes the work of senior or ambassador Girl Scouts who achieve outstanding accomplishments in the areas of leadership, community service, career planning and personal development. Each girl working toward the Gold Award must meet five requirements related to those areas, and must spend a minimum of 80 hours planning and implementing a Girl Scout service project that has a positive and lasting impact on the community.
