Originally Appeared in : 9922-10/24/19

Grace Coleman just completed all the requirements for Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia Gold Award. This prestigious award is the highest a Girl Scout can attain.


Coleman, a St. Vincent’s Academy, Savannah, junior also earned her Silver and Bronze awards in middle school and has been an active scout since kindergarten.


After volunteering and enjoying the great work done at Coastal Pet Rescue (CPR), Coleman saw the need for a training video for the new volunteers. In cooperation with CPR Director Lisa Scarbrough, Coleman put together a video that will be used in volunteer orientations, which will free up the staff as well as provide the new workers clear direction and expectations.


Coleman will be recognized at the Girl Scouts’ annual awards banquet in May. Coleman follows her sister, Addie, who earned her Gold award in 2016 and her three brothers who all earned their Eagle awards in 2016 (Jack) and 2018 (Aidan and Brendan).
