The Woodlands's Demme Durrett earns Girl Scouts of the USA Gold Award
Demme Durrett, of The Woodlands, was presented the Girl Scouts of the USA Gold Award by the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council on Monday, Sept. 10.
The Girl Scouts of the USA Gold Award is the organization's highest honor, with less than five percent of Girl Scouts achieving the award Candidates must complete two to three years of award achievements and more than 100 community service hours. The Gold Award project is one of the last hurdles, requiring candidates to plan and carry out their own significant community service project.
Durrett hosted the Human Rights Walk and Festival at Town Green Park in The Woodlands. She led a team of volunteers in organizing and hosting the walk.
"I chose this project because I really believe that spreading the word on human rights and making sure that everyone is educated on them is something that could really help the world, both locally and abroad," said Durrett according to a press release.
Durrett is a sophomore this fall at the John Cooper School, where she is a member of varsity basketball, yearbook, student council, Student 2 Student Ambassadors, International Club, Culinary Club and Medical Professions at Cooper. Outside school she is a member of National Charity League. She hopes to attend Rice University to study English and science. She has been a member of Girl Scouts for 10 years.
Girl Scouts of the USA has a membership of 3.2 million and aims to help cultivate social conscience and self-esteem in young girls while teaching life skills.
