Girl Scouts Highest Awards recipients honored in Highlands Ranch


Hundreds gathered in Highlands Ranch on Tuesday evening, April 29, to honor Colorado Girl Scouts who have earned one of Girl Scouts Highest Awards, the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

A highlight of this annual event is the opening processional of the awardees led by the Ciorcal Cairde Irish Pipes and Drums. Troops 3869, 2624 and 2201, which represented Girl Scouts from all levels of the Girl Scouting program, also presented a lovely executed event flag ceremony.

Roughly a dozen Bronze Awardees, 80 Silver Awardees and 14 Gold Awardees were honored at the event. Girl Scouts of Colorado CEO Stephanie Foote; GSCO Board Members Kathy Ambrose, Rae Ann Dougherty and Michelle Rose-Hughes; and The Military Order of the World Wars’ Lieutenant Colonel Keith Troutman were on-hand to congratulate the recipients. Girl Scout alumna Ellie Wroble, who earned her Gold Award in 2013 and is completing her freshman year at CU Boulder, was the emcee for the evening, sharing with the crowd that “Girl Scouts allows girls to be more prepared for the future, and for that I am always grateful.”

We are immensely proud of these young women leaders in our community. They are a true inspiration and remind us how important it is to take action to make the world a better place!
