Congratulations to Olivia Herring who recieved the Girl Scout Gold Award with her "Look with New Eyes" project. 

Olivia investigated and took action to address bullying in her school district, first conducting a survey to better understand how bullying was affecting students in grades 4-12 and then partnering with schools to raise awareness among students, teachers, and families about the issue through flyers and targeted communications. Olivia also created a mural as a conversation starter and daily reminder for current and future students, teachers, and the entire school community to consider how their words and actions affect others.
