May 18, 2006

Ashley would like to thank her parents, Pam and Tom, and her younger brother Kevin for encouraging and assisting her in her project. She would also like to thank her leader Mrs. Caswell for 12 years of dedication and for helping her accomplish the highest achievement in Girl Scouting. Her friend Alicia also deserves thanks for helping her with her project. She couldn’t have been as successful without her.

Shiloh Jin

As her Gold Project, Shiloh taught music lessons to at-risk youth at the Sycamores Family Resource Center. Her music instruction taught the children to play recorders, read music, and allowed the children the opportunity to experience music. The Sycamores is an after school program for underprivileged children. The recorders, music sheets, and other music supplies were donated to Shiloh for the music lessons. Shiloh organized recorder music books for each student taught music lessons twice a week. As the finale of their music lessons, the children performed with their recorder for an audience at their facility, and it was a success!


Shiloh has been in the La Cañada High School Marching Band for four years and is participating in a school program where she assists with children at her school who need help with their work in their classes. She has also participated in French Club and Youth Chamber of Commerce Club.

In addition to Girls Scouts, Shiloh enjoys playing the flute, snowboarding, traveling, tennis, and making scrapbooks.

Shiloh is the daughter of Joseph and Esther Jin. She is in Troop #616, and has been a girl scout for 12 years.

Shiloh would like to thank everyone who helped her to complete her Gold Award. Special thanks to her dedicated Girl Scout Advisor, Mrs. Caswell and her parents for their support, Joseph and Esther Jin.
