With the approval of the mayor, county leaders and community supporters, Sydney designed and constructed a small to medium sized dog park in Clarksville. After researching the area in an attempt to find a dog park close to her home, she was sadly disappointed.

As a result, she made this her goal and was quite successful. The park was opened within the St. Bethlehem Civitan Park after a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Natalie’s passion for individuals confined to rehabilitation and nursing homes led her to design activities related to their past home environments. She collected materials and constructed two heavy-duty table gardens with six-inch deep surfaces for Uffelman Estates retirement community and the Clarksville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

After speaking with residents who were interested in gardening, she provided hands on experiences for the residents to plant herbs and flowers. The residents enjoyed manipulating the soil and plants to their advantage.

By earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, Delaney, Sydney and Natalie have become community leaders. Their accomplishments reflect leadership and citizenship skills that set them apart.

“Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award is truly a remarkable achievement, and these young women exemplify leadership in all its forms,” said Shelia Majors, director of training, volunteer relations and outreach at Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. “They saw a need in their communities and around the world and took action. Their extraordinary dedication, perseverance and leadership is making the world a better place.”
