Girl Scout Krisha Desai of New Territory (Rainbow Stars Service Unit-Troop 721) completed her Girl Scout Gold Award – the highest achievement a Girl Scout can earn, symbolizing outstanding accomplishments in the areas of leadership, community service and advocacy. The Girl Scout Gold Award involves more than a year of work including, a minimum of 80 hours of planning and leading a project that benefits the community and will have a long-term impact on the girl’s community.

Ms. Desai’s project benefited the Interfaith Ministries (IMGF).  Ms. Desai‘s project was a Healthy Living Clinic for Refugees in conjunction with Refugee Week Health Fair. Nationwide, only four of every 100 girls, in grades 10-12, is a Girl Scout. Of these, only 5.4% ever complete the Girl Scout Gold Award. The award is recognized as an indication of character and community service by scholarship grantors, college and university admissions offices, and fraternal organizations honoring outstanding teenagers.

Ms. Deasi is a junior at Hightower High School and is the daughter of Sanjay and Sangita Desai.
