Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee recently congratulated Wilson County's Allison Jennings for earning the Girl Scout Gold Award - the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.
As an officer of her school's HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) chapter, Jennings organized a career fair to showcase health care career options. Tennessee Technological University, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Hartsville, Columbia State Community College and Bethel University sent representatives to the inaugural event. Jennings also wrote a guide so that local HOSA chapters will have the tools to host similar programs.
"Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award is truly a remarkable achievement, and these young women exemplify leadership in all its forms," said Shelia Majors, director of training, volunteer relations and outreach at Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. "They saw a need in their communities and around the world and took action. Their extraordinary dedication, perseverance and leadership is making the world a better place."
Jennings will receive her award at the 2017 Salute to Outstanding Leadership Awards ceremony on Sunday, April 30, at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena.
