Montgomery Catholic's O'Mara Earns Girl Scout Gold Award 1Montgomery Catholic senior Maddie O’Mara was presented with the Girl Scout Gold Award on Saturday, September 14 at the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama Lead Out Loud! (LOL)  event at Woodland United Methodist Church in Pike Road. 

Maddie has been a Girl Scout for twelve years. She earned both Bronze and Silver Awards in previous years, and earned the Gold Award for beginning a recycling program at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School last year.  This “Take Action” service program helped her school community, and helped earn her this high honor.

Only 5.4% of all eligible  Girl Scouts earn a Gold Award. It is the highest award a Girl Scout can achieve. Those who receive the Gold Award and enlist in the military, receive a advanced rank as a result of their achievement.  Many colleges offer scholarship money to recipients of the Girl Scout Gold Award.

Maddie O’Mara  is the daughter of Col. and Mrs. Ray O’Mara of Montgomery, Alabama.
