Julie Explains Why She's Giving Back

Julie Explains Why She's Giving Back

Eighty hours of hard work is the icing on the cake for Julie. She’s spent an entire childhood serving her community through the Girl Scouts. Now, as a high school freshman, she’s working toward her Gold Award – the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn. Julie is a bright 14-year-old. Her sights are set on the future: a high school career that will transition into college classes and part-time employment even before that. So, to ensure she could finish with ease and still have time for everything else, it was vital Julie start working on her Gold Award project as soon as possible. “Back in middle school before I could earn this award, I knew I wanted to do something for Shriners,” Julie explained. To put it simply, her project has heart and there’s a good reason why.
