Girl Scout Unveils Art Installation in Remembrance of Shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch and Dedicated to Mental Health

Girl Scout Ambassador Grace B., who is also a senior at STEM School Highlands Ranch, is working to earn the Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts, by securing a permanent art installation for Northridge Recreation Center. On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, the installation was unveiled as part of an event dedicated to erasing the stigma surrounding mental health. The keynote speaker was Frank DeAngelis, former principal of Columbine High School.

 

Grace collaborated with Douglas County artist James Holmes and Highlands Ranch Community Association to create the installation. The Northridge Recreation Center is where Grace and many of her classmates were taken and later reunited with their families following the shooting at her school in May 2019. Special thanks to Fox31/KDVR-TV, CBS4/KCNC-TV, Denver7/KMGH-TV, and Highlands Ranch Herald for sharing Grace’s inspiring story.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable— earned only by a high school Girl Scout who works to address an issue she’s passionate about in a way that produces meaningful and lasting change. Whether it’s on a local, national, or global level, Gold Award Girl Scouts provide innovative solutions to significant challenges. A Gold Award project involves seven steps: 1. Identify an issue, 2. Investigate it thoroughly, 3. Get help and build a team, 4. Create a plan, 5. Present the plan and gather feedback, 6. Take action, 7. Educate and inspire. Of the skills learned through Girl Scouts’ Highest Awards, leadership, organization, and critical thinking are the fundamentals of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Some universities and colleges offer scholarships unique to Gold Award recipients, and girls who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced rank in recognition of their achievements.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.

Women in Politics Event

On behalf of El Pomar’s Forum for Civic Advancement, we are excited to invite Girl Scout Seniors, Ambassadors, and adult members to a virtual ‘Women in Politics’ event, co-hosted by Colorado Municipal League and Colorado 50-50 on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 4-6:30 p.m.

Recognizing that Colorado ranks 18th on the 2019 Gender Parity Index due to its successes in some areas, such as the second highest share of women elected officials in the state legislature, and challenges in other areas, such as local and federal representation, this event is designed to encourage more women in Colorado to run for elected office, clarify the process of running, and provide resources for them as they consider running for elected office. The event also honors that socializing the idea of leadership and elected office to young people is one way to increase representation.

You can view the event invitation with agenda details in the flyer linked below. If this sounds like something you or a Girl Scout in your life would enjoy, please register here.
