ONU Girl Scout Garners Gold Award

Jun 16, 2008
Arielle Ambrosy, a first-year pharmacy major at Ohio Northern University, is a 2008 Girl Scout Gold Award winner.

Ambrosy, a native of Cortland, Ohio, is one of 62 Gold Award recipients in the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio (GSNEO). She will be honored for her achievement as an outstanding young woman at a recognition luncheon in Akron, Ohio, on June 14.

The Gold Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn. It recognizes the leadership and impact 14-to 18-year-old girls have had on their communities. About 5 percent of eligible girls take the rigorous path toward earning this prestigious award, but those who complete the journey change the lives of others and their own in amazing and significant ways.

Ambrosy's Gold Award project, "Girls for Exercise," was a six-week enrichment program for girls in the third through sixth grades. Each week, Ambrosy conducted an exercise routine at Blessed Sacrament Parish in Warren, Ohio. Her project showed young women fun ways to be physically active.

Ambrosy adds the Gold Award to her previous scouting honors: the Silver Award, Bronze Award, Family of God Award, The Marian Award, the 10-Year Membership pin, I Live My Faith Award, and The Spirit Alive Award.
