It was early and they may have been nervous but Jillianne B., Junior in Troop 40404 from Suffern, Addison H., Junior in Troop10075 from Poughkeepsie, Natalie S., Junior in Troop10074 from New Oaks, Jessica S., Cadette in Troop 10365 from New Oaks, and Taylor V., Cadette in Troop 00559 from Pine Bush, who were on-air this morning on the Boris and Robin Show on 101.5 FM, didn't let their nerves show through.

Poised and ready, they spoke with the DJs about Girl Scout the Girl Scout Cookie Program with such passion, showing their inner G.I.R.L.like pros! Before the day was done, Boris and Robin purchased the inaugural boxes of cookies! 

 Way to go, girls, very well done!!!

GSHH Presents Medal of Honor to
Ten-year-old Jessica Mann

January 16, 2019

Ten-year-old Girl Scout Jessica Mann, Bloomingburg, was presented the Girl Scouts of the USA’s Lifesaving Award, The Medal of Honor at a special ceremony held at the Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson Inc.’s Regional Office and Program Center in Montgomery.

Jessica was home with her mom when she started having complications from a recent procedure. Her mom was in pain and was having muscle spasms. In true Girl Scout spirit, Jessica remained calm and called 911, saving her mom’s life.

The Girl Scouts Medal of Honor Lifesaving Award is given to Girl Scouts who have saved a life or attempted to save one without risking her own self. This award and others similar are reserved for those Girl Scouts who have performed heroic acts beyond the degree of maturity and training to be expected at their age.

In Girl Scout programs, girls are taught what to do in these situations and how to help. Jessica stepped up with confidence and took the role of a leader when she made that 911 call.

To quote from the letter that was presented to Jessica from Girl Scouts of the USA CEO, Sylvia Acevedo, “Your heroism and sound judgment have earned you a place in the pantheon of heroes who have come before you, and left an indelible mark on Girl Scouts.”
