52 local Girl Scouts, including three from Turlock, will earn the Girl Scout Gold Award on Sunday for making an impact in their respective communities.

To earn the Girl Scout Gold Award–the highest award in Girl Scouts–girls must address a community issues with a sustainable solution to the root cause. One girl addressed the issue of poverty and hunger by organizing a student to provide support for more than 1,000 students in need.

Rachel Aldax, Alexandra Knapp, and Jennifer Mello are the three recipients of the Girl Scout Gold Award from Turlock. In total, the 52 recipients have spent more than 4,160 hours making change in their communities using the skills they learned in the Girl Scouts.

“Completing my Girl Scout Gold Award project has taught me a lot about how to be an effective leader,” said Gold Award recipient Skylar Martin from Roseville. “It has also provided me with valuable skills and confidence to take on new leadership roles.”

The Gold Award is a national award that recognizes scouts in grades nine through 12 who demonstrate leadership in their Take Action projects. Locally, only about 3.2 percent of girls eligible earned the Gold Award this year.

“Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award is truly an achievement, and these young women exemplify leadership in all its forms," said Dr. Linda E. Farley, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts Heart of Central California. "They saw a need in their communities and took action. Their dedication, perseverance, and leadership, is making the world a better place."

The 52 award recipients will receive their awards in Sacramento on Sunday. A complete list of recipients can be found here.

Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
