Zoë Gadegbeku, a senior at Providence Christian Academy, presented an address at a Girl Scout leadership breakfast on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on February 28. Gadegbeku spoke about the importance of the organization's Gold Award and what it means to be a recipient of the highest award in Girl Scouting. She is a National Young Woman of Distinction of the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Gold Award.
She said: "While earning the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards, Girl Scouts learn to identify community needs, problem solve, fundraise, implement, evaluate impact and sustainability, and budget. Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award has already opened many doors for me." Gadegbeku is from Berkeley Lake, and her parents are Lesley and Philippe Gadegbeku.
Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta will host the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Gold Award Ceremony on Sunday, March 10 from 2-5 p.m. at the Fox Theatre. One hundred and thirteen Gold Award awardees from the Atlanta area will be recognized at the event.
