WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Air Force Sergeants Association Kittyhawk Chapter 751 congratulated Girl Scouts at the annual Gold Award Recognition Ceremony on March 5. The event was held at the Sinclair Ponitz Center in Dayton and was hosted by Girl Scouts of Western Ohio.
Tech. Sgt. Jacquelyn Chapin, chapter president, and Airman 1st Class Corrine Kelley, Airman activity coordinator, presented AFSA certificates of recognition to 37 Girl Scouts who earned the Gold Award.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that Girl Scouts in grades 9 to 12 may earn. To achieve the award, girls commit at least 80 hours to a specific project over the time span of one to two years. Approximately 6 percent of Girl Scouts nationwide earn this award.

Its members are volunteers of all ranks from active duty, guard, reserve, veteran, and their family members. The chapter meets the first Tuesday of the month at 11:30 a.m. at the base USO building; however, the April meeting is scheduled for April 11. For more information, email AFSA751@yahoo.com.
