NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Following a year of unique challenges, Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee (GSMIDTN) will recognize more than 500 Girl Scouts and volunteers at Girl Scouts Honors Day this Saturday, May 8.

 

Supported by the Nashville Sounds and Nashville Sounds Foundation, GSMIDTN will host the event at First Horizon Park and celebrate 343 Girl Scouts earning their Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards— the highest honors a Girl Scout can achieve.

All together, these Highest Award Girl Scouts have completed more than 10,000 community service hours with “Take Action” projects that address education, public safety, science, and the arts in Middle Tennessee.

“Girl Scouts Highest Awards are a tremendous undertaking, requiring planning, persistence, and a commitment to tackling the most important issues impacting our communities,” said Agenia Clark, President and CEO of Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. “We are so proud to recognize the service and achievements of these Girl Scouts and look forward to seeing all that they will accomplish in the future.”

GSMIDTN will also honor 225 “Stellar Sellers,” who each sold either 1,000+ packages of Girl Scout Cookies or $1,000 dollars’ worth of the Fall Product Program. Seventeen adult volunteers will receive awards for their dedication to supporting these young leaders.

Girl Scout friends and family are invited to tune in to the event’s livestream on the GSMIDTN Facebook page.

GSMIDTN is grateful to the Nashville Sounds and Nashville Sounds Foundation for the support to build Girl Scouts of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
