Meschino Creates Outdoor Activities Pavilion
Posted on 10/28/2020

Congratulations to Shaye Meschino for becoming a Gold Award Girl Scout, a designation she earned by creating a pavilion with information about local outdoor activities, which can be used for community members to meet, enjoy the outdoors, or take a break during a walk or bike ride. The pavilion has already been used for socially distanced gatherings, and Shaye hopes that community members will be inspired to take a brochure and visit some of the nearby hiking, biking, and nature trails to have a great time outdoors and enjoy the benefits of active, outdoor activities.

The Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—earned by a high school Girl Scout who works to address an issue she’s passionate about in a way that produces meaningful and lasting change. Whether it’s on a local, national, or global level, Gold Award Girl Scouts provide innovative solutions to significant challenges.

 "Gold Award Girl Scouts don’t just change the world for the better, they change it for good—and Shaye embodies everything this achievement stands for," said Mary Buszuwski, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York. “Shaye addressed an issue that’s important to her—health and outdoor activities—for her Gold Award, and we congratulate her on this momentous accomplishment.”
