Ludowici teen earns scouting honor
Placeholder Image
On May 3, the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia awarded the  Girl Scout Gold Award to four teens during a ceremony at the Elks Lodge 183 in Savannah.
One award recipient, Kristine Finley of Ludowici, is the daughter of local scout troop leader Janis Finley.
Kristine, 18, has been a Girl Scout for 12 years. Her Gold Award project was titled, “Recreation Area Repair.” Her desire to provide soldiers and families an enjoyable place to spend leisure time prompted her to renovate a recreation area pavilion at the National Guard training area on Fort Stewart. She refurbished and painted picnic tables, replaced screening along the outside of the pavilion and worked with National Guard maintenance personnel to repair plumbing in the restrooms.
The Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. It recognizes the work of senior or ambassador scouts for leadership, community service, career planning and personal development.
Each girl working toward the award must complete five requirements pertaining to those areas, including spending a minimum of 50 hours planning and implementing a Girl Scout service project that has a positive and lasting impact on the community.
