Nina Distefano earns Girl Scout Gold Award
PS Class of '08 Alum, Nina Distefano, earned the Girl Scout Gold Award after organizing a service project at the DePelchin Children's Center, which focuses on strengthening children's lives by providing mental health, foster care and adoption services. Nina and a group of volunteers created affordable fashion items for teenage girls out of materials such as trash bags and coffee filters. Nina then worked directly with 35 teenage girls helping to raise self-esteem.
The Gold Award is a huge achievement - less than five percent of Girl Scouts complete the Gold Award requirements. Nina also had to complete over 100 community service hours and two to three years of award work before one of the last requirements, the service project.
We are proud of the many acheivements of our PS Alum and wish her well as she attends her first year of college at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia.
