Girl Scouts of Connecticut awarded four RHS Seniors the highest honor in Girl Scouting on Sunday, June 4, 2017. The girls earned their Gold Award, a leadership award earned by less than 6% of all Girl Scouts. The Gold Award project solves community issues and acknowledges the girl’s leadership, commitment, creativity and proactive efforts to make their community and the world a better place. A Ridgefield ceremony will be held on Monday June 12, 2017 at 7 pm at Ridgefield High School where the girls will describe their project in more detail.
