Hendricks County youth serve on Girl Scouts board

Girl Scouts of Central Indiana recently welcomed two youth members to their board of directors.

Stephanie Gossman and Sarah Kendall were recommended as potential board members through the United Way of Central Indiana sponsored Youth Leadership Initiative. Gossman and Kendall were appointed to the board in September. The two young women are the first youth appointed to the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana board of directors.

Gossman is a junior at Cardinal Ritter High School. A student-athlete, her volunteer activities have included many Girl Scout events, Promise to Keep mentor, Cardinal Ritter student ambassador, CYO camp counselor, SADD Club vice president, National Honor Society, Campus Ministry, and St. Malachy Youth Council member.

She has taken a mission trip to Haiti and earned many awards including the Cardinal Joseph E. Ritter Memorial Scholarship, St. Malachy School Student Council Scholarship, and the Girl Scout Bronze Award.

Kendall is a sophomore at Avon High School. She volunteers with Sheltering Wings, Special Olympics, Peer Pals, the Avon-Washington Township Public Library, and Hands Helping Hendricks.

She is also a staff member of The Echo, Avon High School’s student newspaper; an officer for the Avon High School Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America chapter; and secretary/treasurer of Senior Girl Scout Troop 167. Kendall has earned several awards including the Girl Scout Bronze and Silver awards, and a silver medal at Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America.

Girl Scouts of Central Indiana serves more than 40,000 girls in 45 counties across central Indiana. Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is a leadership development organization for girls with more than 3 million girl and adult members.
