MLWGS Senior Receives Gold Award
Kerry Sawyer celebrated her Gold Award Ceremony this past weekend with friends and family. Her Gold Award project was titled "Bringing a Piece of Home through Cooking" for the Fisher House at McGuire Veterans Hospital in Richmond. Fisher House is like a home away from home for the families of veterans receiving care at the VA Hospital. Kerry cooked and served home-made breakfasts along with trading recipes on the weekends. This eliminated one more burden for the families staying there, and the hospital patients got a chance to come to the house for a meal. The Gold Award is the highest honor you can earn as a Girl Scout, culminating after being a Girl Scout for 11 years.
