Congratulations to our Board-Approved Award Recipients! 
During our 2022 Annual Meeting, which was held on Saturday, April 30 in Gastonia, we had the honor of awarding several Board-Approved Awards to our incredible volunteers. You can find all the recipients here. Congratulations!

We also honored Barbara Smith with the first ever GSCP2P Juliette Gordon Low Lifetime Achievement Award. Barbara’s Girl Scout journey spans 84 years-  beginning during World War II as a girl member, leading a troop of her own, serving as board president of the council and traveling the world (just to name a few of her Girl Scout adventures!). Click here to watch a tribute video of Barbara. 

​Congratulations to our 2022 Silver and Gold Award Girl Scouts! 
Over the weekend, our three council-wide Girl Scout Silver and Gold Award ceremonies were held to honor our 2022 Silver and Gold Award Girl Scouts. It was a time of celebration for sure! 

You can check out this year’s girls in our 2022 Highest Awards Yearbook on our website.
