MADISON – Isis Butler, a senior at Bob Jones High School, recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award.

To earn the Gold Award, Butler completed a service project for the Animal Hope Chest. Her project focused on educating people about animal cruelty and adoption.

During the project, Butler held educational sessions with professional speakers who instructed attendees about animal care. “Each person left with a bag of age-appropriate information about animal care, strays and adoption,” Robyn Tucker said.

Tuckers serves as communications manager for the Girl Scouts of North Central-Alabama.

“Through her project, Isis learned networking and public speaking skills. She now wants to help her community in any way she can,” Tucker said.

Butler said she “is looking forward for more projects to come, and I am definitely excited for what the Animal Hope Chest will do for animals of all kinds, everywhere.”

By earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, Butler has become a community leader, Sheila Smith said. Smith is chief financial officer and interim chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama.

“Isis’ accomplishments reflect leadership and citizenship skills that set her apart,” Smith said.

Girls seeking the Gold Award embrace challenges and work diligently to make the world a better place, Tucker said. These girls’ leadership, vision and boundless energy are an inspiration to all Girl Scouts.

Each girl earning her Gold Award demonstrates excellence through a leadership project totaling more than 65 hours. Girls who earn their Gold Award receive recognition from the U.S. president and Congress, U.S. Armed Services, state legislatures and the American Legion.

Some universities and colleges offer scholarships unique to Gold Award recipients.

“Since 1916, girls have successfully answered the call to go gold, an act that indelibly marks them as accomplished members of their communities and the world,” Tucker said.
