2019 Award Winner

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award presented by the Girl Scouts of America. A Girl Scout must go through many levels of approval before earning the Gold Award. Kelly O’Mahoney earned her Gold Award in 2012 for putting together a training manual for outdoor skills specifically for the Girl Scout leaders.

Our Louisiana Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship has set two precedents. First, Kelly Kicking Cancer facilitated the first ever joint Gold Award Ceremony between the Pines To The Gulf Girl Scout Council and the Louisiana East Girl Scouts Council. 2019 was also the first time the Gold Awards were presented at the Old Governor’s Mansion in Baton Rouge. Previous awards were made at the current governor’s mansion which is under reconstruction. Thirteen outstanding young women earned the Gold Award in Louisiana in 2019. Congratulations ladies!
