June 26, 2018—Four CFISD high school students earned Girl Scouts’ highest honor in the spring, with each becoming a Gold Award Girl Scout, an honor less than five percent of Girl Scouts achieve.

Cypress Ranch High School student Kaitlin Carroll, Jersey Village High School student Madeline Daigle and Cypress Ridge High School students and sisters Cameryn Mountain and Parker Mountain all earned the distinguished honor. Carroll, Daigle and Cameryn Mountain all just completed their junior years at their respective high schools, while Parker Mountain graduated from Cypress Ridge in early June.

The Gold Award recognizes girls in high school who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable community service projects that require a minimum of 80 hours to complete.

Jersey Village High School student Madeline Daigle recently became a Gold Award Girl Scout, an honor only accomplished by less than five percent of Girl Scouts. Daigle highlighted the importance of indoor gardening for healthy living to the senior population. She worked with 10 volunteers to build an accessible indoor garden at The Manor at Jersey Village.

Carroll worked with adolescents dealing with social anxiety, hosting four group sessions for boys and girls during summer 2017 where she coached them on methods of communications and taught them the importance of social cues. To put those skills in practice and encourage participants to work together, Carroll led outings to rope courses, an escape room, Urban Air and laser tag. She also provided scrapbooks and pamphlets to parents outlining sessions and outings and ways to help improve their children’s social skills and calm anxiety.

“I decided that the focus of my Gold Award project would be adolescents dealing with social anxiety because I wanted to be able to help other boys and girls who have the same problems I struggled with in the past,” Carroll said.

Daigle highlighted the importance of indoor gardening for healthy living to the senior population, including the production of organic fruits and vegetables, relieving stress and purifying the air. She worked with 10 volunteers to build a new, easily accessible indoor garden at The Manor at Jersey Village.

“I’ve always loved helping in the garden with my mom and grandma, and I have always loved building things,” said Daigle. “These two interests helped me complete this project.”

Cypress Ridge High School student Parker Mountain was among four CFISD students to become Gold Award Scouts this spring. In completing a community service project, Mountain worked with Lone Star Association for Behavior Analysis in Magnolia. She and 25 volunteers refreshed nature trails on Lone Star’s campus, clearing paths overgrown with brush and roots and constructing new bridges, staircases and wooden walkways.

Parker’s passion for helping people with disabilities led her to working with the Lone Star Association for Behavior Analysis in Magnolia for her Gold Award project. The facility needed more outside activities for its patients, so Parker, with support from 25 volunteers, refreshed nature trails on Lone Star’s campus, clearing paths overgrown with brush and roots and constructing new bridges, staircases and wooden walkways.

“I used my Gold Award as an opportunity to honor my aunt who passed away,” she said. “She had a passion and gift for teaching those with special needs. Lone Star had a student that my aunt mentored for many years, so through earning the Gold Award, I was able to give back to the organization that my aunt gave her time to for so many years.”

Cameryn used skills she learned in audio/video classes to create an awareness video and brochure for the Life Hammer Safety Tool, an emergency hammer that includes a razor blade to help in escape and rescue situations. She believes this tool saves lives and would have saved the life of her aunt who died two years ago when she accidentally drove her car into a nearby lake.

Recent Cypress Ridge High School graduate Cameryn Mountain became a Gold Award Girl Scout, an honor only accomplished by less than five percent of Girl Scouts. Using skills learned in audio/video classes, Mountain created an awareness video and brochure for the Life Hammer Safety Tool, an emergency hammer for rescue and safety situations.

“If she had one of these tools, I believe she would have made it,” Cameryn said. “I am using her situation to bring awareness to others to help save lives in the future.”
