Elacha Roman of Hinesville received the Girl Scout Gold Award at a formal ceremony May 5 in Savannah.

Elacha is a member of Troop No. 30151 and a sophomore at Liberty County High School.

The Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout can earn. It recognizes the work of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts, ninth- to 12-graders who have outstanding accomplishments in the areas of leadership, community service and personal development. Each girl working toward the award spends a minimum of 80 hours planning and implementing a leadership project that puts the Girl Scout Promise and Law into action.

At the May 5 ceremony, Elacha said she has family members in the Army, so she wanted to do something special with the Warriors Walk on Fort Stewart. She titled her project “In Memory of our Warriors.” She cleaned, dressed and created photographic documentation of 443 memorials dedicated to brave women and men at Fort Stewart.

Because many families don’t live in the area and are unable to travel to the memorial, Elacha made the photo project available online.

The award came from the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, which represents 125 counties and about 20,000 Girl Scouts, according to www.gshg.org. Twelve Scouts received Gold Awards from the GSHG.
