Congratulations to Eagle Nation’s Girl Scout Gold Award Recipients! 

Madison DesPres: Galway Backpack Program

Madison started a backpack program at her school to address local food insecurity. Although schools do provide free or reduced-cost meals for students who qualify, those students are often left with fewer options when school is not in session, on weekends or during breaks. Madison’s backpack program provides students in need with a backpack of non-perishable food items for the weekend and school breaks, creating a reliable and convenient option for students and families that face food insecurity.

Rachel Germain: Engaging High-Achieving Elementary Students

Rachel created an after-school enrichment program to provide second graders performing at or above grade level an opportunity to build on the skills they were learning in class, challenge themselves academically, and practice important life skills such as teamwork, responsibility, and time management.


Congratulations Madison and Rachel! You have made Eagle Nation proud!
