MPHS junior first local Girl Scout to receive Gold Award


Kayla Davis, a 17-year-old junior at Middle Park High School, is the first Girl Scout in Grand County to ever complete her Gold Award.

The Girl Scouts’ Gold Award is the equivalent to the Eagle Scout Award for Boy Scouts.

Davis is also a member of the knowledge bowl team, drama club, National Honor Society and 4-H-Trail Mountain Mustangs.

For Davis’s project, she created a NSCD Moves course which is a custom obstacle course that can be adapted for all abilities and disabilities which will be utilized by the National Sports Center for the Disabled mountain programs. Materials were donated by both Granby and Fraser Ace Hardware stores for the wood and PVC obstacles.

She wrote a grant to Mountain Parks Electric and received $2,000 to purchase a box trailer for NSCD to transport and store the course.

Davis will officially receive her Gold Award on May 9 in Silverthorne at the Girls Scouts of Colorado Highest Awards ceremony.
