Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest achievement for members, is something that any Girl Scout would be proud of. For Malvern resident Darragh Friedman, an 18-year-old freshman at Temple University, earning the award puts her in the less than six percent who have done so. Earning this prestigious award, which involves completing projects that demand at least 65 hours of work and months of planning, is recognized by the president and Congress, the U.S. armed services, state legislatures, the American Legion and institutions of higher learning. Also, colleges and universities are now recognizing Girl Scout Gold Awardees through scholarship programs.There are three levels of awards including silver and bronze, both of which Friedman earned with her troop. The Gold Award was given to her after completing her leadership project, which culminated in the debut of a 30-minute film entitled “The Voices of History Before They Are Silenced: The Holocaust,” which was shown at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute (BMFI) at the end of the summer.
