Spring's Hand earns Girl Scouting's highest national honor
Girl Scout Jennifer Hand, of Spring, recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, scouting's highest national honor.
Hand earned the award by cataloging, organizing and creating a computer database for the resource library at Early Childhood Intervention's Keep Pace program.
"I chose this project because Keep Pace helps parents and children with special needs in my community," said Hand in the press release.
To earn the Gold award, Girl Scouts must demonstrate leadership skills, career planning, community involvement and personal development. It takes more than 100 service hours and two to three years of intensive work to complete the award requirements.
Hand has been a member of the Girl Scouts for nine years. At Klein High School, she is a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, band, student council and the National Honor Society. She plans to attend college to study civil engineering after graduation.
