Girl Scouts go golden REGION — Proma Dewanjee, Alexis Durant, Sophia Ilas, Avalon Johnson, Hannah Lange, Madison Ma, Katherine Monko, Elyse O'Neill and Miya Scheble, all of Carlsbad, and Hannah Ballew of Del Mar, earned the Girl Scout Gold Award — the organization’s highest honor — for their outstanding leadership and commitment to taking action in their community. Just 5 percent of Girl Scouts nationwide achieve this distinction. Recipients qualify for special college scholarships and can enter the military one rank higher than usual, among other rewards. Ballew wrote a picture book to help adults find the right words when explaining ALS — Lou Gehrig’s Disease — to children. Pianist Dewanjee, who now teaches and performs piano, provided music education and therapy for In-
dian women and children affected by disabilities, poverty, the sex trade and mental illness. A member of La Costa Canyon High School’s Best Buddies Club, Durant arranged open mic nights for teenagers and adults with special needs at the Hill Street Café. O'Neill (who graduated in 2015) belonged to the Carlsbad High Speech and Debate Team. She started a speech and debate program through which middle school students could enhance their self-confidence. Ilas created an interactive sensory garden and related curriculum geared toward students with special needs. Lange taught third-graders about the current drought, then helped them convert a 1,300-square-foot plot of grass into a drought-resistant succulent garden kept up by the school’s rain wa-
tering system. Johnson led surf camps, teaching participants about beach safety and environmental responsibility along with surfing skills. Scheble’s Special Olympics program, which she presented through Carlsbad High School’s Best Buddies Club, brought together able-bodied students and those with disabilities. Inspired by her experiences in Girl Scouts’ Technology Goddesses day camps, Ma gave students of diverse backgrounds and ages the opportunity to use a Bluetooth-controllable robotic ball called a Sphero. Monko, realizing that her school’s online health class wasn’t meeting student needs, surveyed her classmates and brought in a self-defense instructor, a psychologist, a neurologist, two estheticians and a yoga instructor to answer questions.
