Why did she do this?
Sarah is fascinated with Girl Scout history. Owning several vintage uniforms, she is a fourth generation Girl Scout/Girl Guide and has compiled her families Girl Scout history stories during the 100th anniversary. As a 16 year old high school senior she still had 2 years left as a Girl Scout and her aunt challenged her, in fun to earn the other Girl Scout Higher Awards – Golden Eaglet, Curved Bar and First Class. This challenge excited her to learn more about all three higher awards. Thanks to eBay she was able to get all the manuals, badge books and even the badges for all three awards. Her mom has her keep everything in a journal and a blog. She also cannot do the same “badge” for all three awards and she cannot count what she did for one badge (regardless of the era) for another one. “I want to learn and be proficient in new subjects – this is one way to make sure that I stay outside my comfort zone.” For example the “tree finder badge” – she cannot earn it for the Curved Bar or the First Class since she earned it for the Golden Eaglet.
In addition to Girl Scout activities, Sarah is the Youth Director for Discover Green – a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, member of the Keep America Beautiful Youth Advisory Committee and the City of
Parks and Recreation Commission. Pflugerville
