The Huntington Township Girl Scout Awards Ceremony was held this past week, and South Huntington was well represented. Debbie DeMartino made the presentation of the Gold Awards to Walt Whitman seniors Nicole Katz and Kitty Le Claire. Nicole’s project was titled "EX the TXT: Texting and Driving," and it focused on the importance of good decisions behind the wheel. Kitty Le Claire worked on securing books and showcased "Mini Libraries in School Cafeterias and Early Childhood Centers." 

The following South Huntington Girl Scouts were Silver Award recipients:

Cassie Eaches–Project Literacy–9th grade

Lauren Groser–Project Literacy–9th grade

Milly Le Claire–Greenbelt Trail Renovation–9th grade

Gabrielle Nardelli–Special Needs Cheer Camp–8th grade

Michelle Nardelli–Special Needs Cheer Camp–9th grade

Working on her Silver Award for next year and assisting in the ceremonies was Whitman freshman Danielle Dellaccio

The awards ceremony featured speakers and dignitaries presenting proclamations, and each of the awardees spoke about the importance of her project as well as what scouting has meant to her. South Huntington Superintendent Dave Bennardo and Whitman Principal Kathleen Acker congratulated the girls on their dedication. New York Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci was also invited to speak. He acknowledged the importance of scouting and gave the audience a lesson in legislative districts and just how many in the audience he represents. “These young women are leaders in their schools and communities. Their achievement recognizes the important work they’ve taken part in as they’ve grown in this role,” said Lupinacci. “These outstanding young women have also demonstrated their focus and confidence as team players. As Gold and Silver Award Winners, they’ve set themselves on a stage for a lifetime of achievement.”

Congratulations to all of our Girl Scout Gold and Silver Award recipients!
