Emma Kinsey, a Girl Scout from Portsmouth, NH who is a senior this year at Oyster River High School has taken home the Gold Award.

New England seems to have some great Girl Scouts because according to Patch.com/new-hampshire, 12 Girl Scouts from New Hampshire and Vermont earned Gold Awards.

The Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains Council awarded Emma Kinsey the Gold for her project “Herstory,” which featured the lives of three women from history, the article stated.

One of the women she chose to feature in her project was Sarah Parker Goodwin, who was the wife of New Hampshire Gov. Ichabod Goodwin during the Civil War, according to the Patch article. Kinsey also chose to highlight the story of a Ukrainian Jewish family that pulled themselves out of poverty. Her project is being featured at the Portsmouth Strawberry Banke Museum.

I think it’s clear to say that Emma Kinsey has a bright future ahead of her. She plans to study microbiology and genetics at Scripps College in California according to Patch.com/new-hampshire. What a wonderful representative of Scouting young Emma is. Congratulations on taking home the Gold and best wishes for your future studies Emma!
