On Sunday, June 9, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast hosted a special celebration at Norfolk State University for the 39 girls who earned the Girl Scout Gold Award during the past year. Cathy Lewis, host of award-winning radio show “HearSay with Cathy Lewis” on WHRV-FM 89.5, was the guest speaker for the afternoon. Recognizing the range of projects from creating beautiful spaces in the community to developing programs for underprivileged youth, Lewis pointed out that these young women are making an impact on the world.

Each recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award was recognized on stage and her project was shared with
all of those who attended. They were also congratulated by Shannon Kendrick, District Director in Congressman Scott Rigell’s Virginia Beach office and Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast CEO Tracy Keller, who earned the Girl Scout Gold Award when she was a Girl Scout in high school in Virginia Beach.
