Gold Award Spotlight: Uplifting Wolverines

Girl Scout Ambassador Corryn has earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor and achievement a girl can earn in Girl Scouts.

For her Gold Award, “Uplifting Wolverines,” Corryn wanted to uplift the student body at her high school through a mural that included positive sayings and quotes. The idea came to her after a tragic event happened at her school that affected her peers. She recognized that school can be a stressful time for teenagers and wanted to find a way to help the entire student body. By creating the mural, she was able to give back to the school and the students in her community, something that will have a positive impact on them for years to come.

“I feel this has impacted my school’s environment because if people are having a bad day there is something they can look at that has the potential to lift their spirits even if it’s just for a minute,” she explained.

Corryn hopes her project will be made sustainable with the help of her school’s administrators as they work to share the message of positivity Corryn created.
