Many are called but few are chosen.
And two Rossland young people were chosen for the Chief Commissioner’s Gold award, the final award girls can get in Guiding.
Megan Heximer and Beth Aiken completed all requirements of the Ranger program, successfully meeting challenges in eight different areas which celebrated guiding, community connection, environment, outdoors and camping.
The award usually takes three years to complete but Megan and Beth completed it in two years.
As well, the requirements dealt with exploring your creativity, global awareness, healthy living, leadership and management, and “your future.”
The girls had to do a community service project which included at least 20 hours. They chose the areas they were interested in and expanded on them. Leadership and planning activities with other guiding groups was encouraged.
