Local Girl Scouts to Receive Gold Awards May 21

May 18, 2006

In addition to Girl Scouting, Maddy has a variety of interests. For the last few years, she has gone on the Yosemite Institute trips with La Cañada High School. Of her many experiences in high school, those trips have been among her best. She also participated in the choral program, Interact Club, and YES. She is an honor student and has been a member of CSF and the National Honor Society. In the fall she will be attending Bates College in Maine where she hopes to study philosophy and history. At the moment she has no idea what she wants to be, but figures that if all else fails, she can be a philosopher.

“My Gold Award never would have been possible without the encouragement and guidance of my leader, Mrs. Noli Caswell. Thanks also to Diana Gambel for her invaluable time and support. Throughout my project I was inspired by the generosity of the many people without whose donations my project would not be a reality. Finally, I want to thank my parents whose presence makes everything possible,” said Madison.

For Diana’s Gold project, she held a basketball clinic at Five Acres, a children abuse and neglect prevention and treatment center located in Pasadena. She supplied many basketballs for her camp and for the facility through donations and left them there afterward for the children to continue to play with. She held four sessions, teaching the basic fundamentals of basketball with the help of her fellow teammates from the high school basketball team. She used drills and interactive activities to allow the children to learn more about the great game while still having fun.

Diana is a senior at La Cañada High School and in addition to having been a scout for eleven years, she is also a member of the Varsity Basketball team and is a co-team captain of the Varsity tennis team. For the past four years she has been a member of the California Scholarship Federation and the National Honors Society. This year is her third year as a member of the high school’s ASB and she currently holds the position of the election’s chair. She is the Chief Justice of the LCHS Student Honor Court after being a member for six years and is also the Treasurer of Spanish Club. On her free time she keeps herself active with sports, draws in her sketchbook, listens to music, and hangs out with her friends.
