Katy Girl Scout creates promotional materials for local theater group to earn Gold Award

Katy, TX (November, 2011) - Girl Scouts, San Jacinto Council, LogoGirl Scout Flossie B. created promotional materials for King's Company, a Christian community theater in Katy, to earn the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can achieve. Less than five percent of girls who join Girl Scouts earn this recognition.

"I learned how to use new computer programs and improved my photo editing skills," said Flossie, a home school student. "I also developed my leadership skills during this project and got better at planning meetings and communicating with team members."

Earning the Gold Award is a significant honor that requires recipients to demonstrate outstanding leadership skills, career planning, community involvement and personal development. It takes more than 100 service hours and two to three years of intensive work to complete the award requirements, which include planning and completing a project that is a service to the community.

"I chose this project because being involved in theater is a wonderful thing that I would like more people to have the opportunity to do," said Flossie.

For her project, Flossie created a leaflet and two photo books about King's Company to be distributed throughout the community. Prior to the project, the theater group didn't have any promotional materials to share with those interested in becoming members. The materials were distributed to members and visitors of Church of the Holy Apostles.

"Flossie has always been an enthusiastic Girl Scout. She chose a Gold Award project that combined her love of theater with her talents in design," said Ginny B., Flossie's mother. "She has shown patience and persistence and has organized her commitments well in order to achieve her goals and complete her Gold Award."

As a member of Girl Scouts, Flossie is a program aide and has served as a docent at the Goody Kontz Museum of Girl Scout History for three years. She has been a member of King's Company for seven years.
