Two Girl Scouts receive a major award

Girl Scouts Win Major Award

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A pair of Girl Scouts had a golden day Monday.

Faith Killian-Fassnacht, 16, and 19-year-old Samantha Music received the Girl Scout Gold Award which is the highest honor of the organization.

To qualify, scouts must spend 80 hours on a charitable project that is judged on complexity and the amount of people it helps.

Faith made compassion blankets for the Franciscan Saint Elizabeth Neonatal Unit and Samantha made a sensory trail for kids at a therapeutic horse ranch.

Both scouts were also presented with a Distinguished Citizen Award by Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski Monday.

“It means a lot because I know I got to help a very special group of people,” said Samantha.

“I enjoy it and everything,” added Faith. “I’m happy to be able to get the awards that I do, but I don’t do it for the awards. I don’t know. It does help me go farther with stuff, knowing that I’m actually doing something right.”

This fall, Faith will be a junior at McCutcheon and Samantha will be a sophomore at Ivy Tech.
