Sydney Stevenson are members of Girl Scouts of America Troop 1011; and
  WHEREAS, Girl Scouting has cultivated in our nation's young people the
goals of building solid values of sisterhood and the importance of work-
ing  with  others, stimulating both mind and body, instilling pride, and
encouraging community service and success; and
  WHEREAS, Girl Scouting has expanded  the  horizons  of  the  countless
young  women  who have participated in the programs which have made Girl
Scouting an American and international institution; and
  WHEREAS, The Girl Scout Bronze Award requires the Girl Scout Junior to
learn the leadership and planning skills necessary to follow through  on
a  project that makes a positive impact on her community; working toward
this award demonstrates her commitment to helping others, improving  her
community and the world, and becoming the best she can be; and
  WHEREAS, To earn the Bronze Award, these 19 Girl Scouts completed four
requirements;  the  first three required them to earn two badges related
to their Bronze Award project, complete one of the Girl Scout Signs, and
earn the Junior Aide Award, the Girl Scout Junior Leadership  Award,  or
two  of  four  specified  badges  after  which they completed the fourth
requirement, a Bronze Award Community service project which  these  Girl
Scouts planned, developed and executed; and
  WHEREAS, The Bronze Award symbolizes a Girl Scout Junior's accomplish-
ments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works
to  better  her life and the lives of others; it is tangible evidence of
their high character and commitment, and is a harbinger of their  future
service  to  their community, New York State and our nation; now, there-
fore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
warmly  congratulate these 19 Girl Scouts, recognizing their achievement
in earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award and wishing them success,  health
and happiness; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the aforementioned Girl Scouts.
