Five Westfield Girl Scouts earned two of the highest awards at the annual Girls of Distinction Celebration on June 8 at the J.W. Marriott in downtown Indianapolis.

Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts, recipients in Westfield were Tiffany Burns and Rose Thompson. The award recognizes the leadership and impact a young woman can have on her community. To earn the award, Burns set up a ministry at St. Maria Goretti through which parishioners can learn of small projects within the church and school where they can lend a helping hand. Thompson hosted a workshop that targeted the issues of low self-esteem and modesty, specifically in women.

Girl Scouts Sara Zaloudek, Kailey Sherman and Talia Broekers were among the nearly 200 Silver Awards recipients. All three girls are from Troop 1462 in Westfield. The Silver Award is the highest award that may be earned by Girl Scout Cadettes. In planning for the Girl Scout Silver Award, each girl applies the skills she has developed to meet the demanding challenges of the steps in her action plan, which calls for her to contribute to the betterment of the lives of others.
