MADISON – By helping the track team at Bob Jones High School, Lillie Robinson has earned the Gold Award, the pinnacle of merit in Girl Scouts.

Robinson already had earned Bronze and Silver awards. “I really wanted to earn the complete trio (and) strive for the highest possible award in Girl Scouting,” she said.

Her four-part project targeted individuals’ lack of motivation to exercise. For the Bob Jones Track Team, she built a record board. Last spring, Robinson organized a track day for elementary students.

She produced a pamphlet to motivate senior citizens to exercise. Robinson installed a “stretching sign” by the track that states the need and techniques for proper stretching.

Robinson patterned her record board after one for Madison Swim Association. For the base, she built a cedar, four-by-six slab, sealed with primer and painted. “I then took wall holders for an office (for) the records, made of phenolic sheets. When someone breaks a record, the coach has an easy time replacing it,” she said.

SCSWORX on County Line Road encased the board in Plexiglas. Overall, the project required 80 hours for Robinson.

“My track coach Brad Jefferson and Stephen Baker helped to arrange the board’s details. Kati Bero, Shelby Travis and LouAnn Crosby in Troop 242, Troop Leader Beth Bero and Assistant Leader Sherry Robinson helped specifically with elementary track day,” Lillie Robinson said.

Bowman’s Enterprise discounted supplies. Lillie’s brother Colby Robinson with This Side Up and Michael Robie with SCSWORX also helped.

Robinson participates in cross-country and track teams, National Honor Society and other national honor societies for English, science and technical. She has served as track team captain for three years and was awarded “Most Valuable” for the girl’s distance team in both cross-country and track.

Her parents are Jerry and Sherry Robinson. He works as a contractor for MacAulay Brown. She is self-employed at J Caudle and Co. jewelry store.

Lillie’s sister, Aspen Robinson, is a Bob Jones junior. Lillie’s family moved to Madison in 2009, just before she entered sixth grade.

Lillie plans to major in biomedical engineering in college.
