Girl Scout earns highest honor

Mental Health Awareness Month proclaimed


Aledo High School senior Jane Claire Anderson received recognition from the Annetta City Council members for the winning the Girl Scout Gold Award. The recognition came at Annetta’s April 18 council meeting.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest honor given to Girl Scouts.

“I am impressed with your dedication and desire as a leader,” Annetta Mayor Sandy Roberts said. “"Your music project fits right in with our May Mental Health Awareness month for senior citizens.”

Anderson is a drum major in the marching band, a piccolo player, an Aledo Ambassador, and president of the National Honor Society at AHS. She plans to attend the University of Texas at Austin and major in neurospace.

According to a statement from Girl Scouts, “Gold Award Girl Scouts are rock stars, role models, and real-life heroes. How do they do it? By using everything they’ve learned as a Girl Scout to help fix a problem in their community or make a lasting change in their world.

"And you don’t have to be a seasoned activist or star student to get there. Girl Scouts who want to get involved and go for the Gold Award get a team of trusted adults and leaders in their community to guide them through challenges and lead them to success, step-by-step. There’s no other program like it.”
