Girl Scouts of Colorado Board Member Rae Ann Dougherty recently received a very prestigious national Girl Scout award. Rae Ann was presented with the Juliette Low World Friendship Medal during the annual Friends of Our Cabana meeting in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The medal is “awarded to individuals who have enriched and leveraged the global understanding of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting to grow responsible global citizens. This prestigious national award is approved by the GSUSA National Board of Directors.”
This is only the third time the award has gone to an adult Girl Scout from Colorado. The other two recipients were LaRae Orullian and JoAnne Busch. To receive this award you must be nominated. Marlene Logan, Katrina Jameson and Eloise Golden were instrumental in submitting Rae Ann’s application.
Rae Ann has been involved in Girl Scouting for years, and in the fall made a $25,000 lead gift with her husband, Richard, to the Girl Scouts of Colorado Endowment. This gift will provide scholarships to current or lifetime Girl Scouts of Colorado members between the ages of 12 and 30 for travel.
