CONGRATULATING Makenzie Kellogg upon the occasion
of receiving the distinguished Girl Scout Gold
Award, the most prestigious of Scouting honors

WHEREAS, Makenzie Kellogg, through her diligence and rigorous
efforts, has achieved Scouting's highest and most prestigious honor, the
Girl Scout Gold Award; and

WHEREAS, Makenzie Kellogg of Burdett, New York, is a member of Girl
Scouts of America Troop 40170; and

WHEREAS, America has achieved her greatest heights of glory through
the dedication, determination and tireless efforts of the outstanding
citizens of this Nation; and

WHEREAS, It is only with the continued diligence and devotion of our
youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain her glory; and

WHEREAS, The Girl Scouts of America and its members are dedicated to
the development of character and leadership in the youth of this Nation;

WHEREAS, Since 1980, Senior Girl Scouts have capped their years of
achievement in Girl Scouting with the Girl Scout Gold Award; and

WHEREAS, In order to earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, a girl must
fulfill five requirements; chief among them is the design and completion
of a Gold Award Project; this project must build upon the interests of
the girl, provide a service to the community, and be of lasting benefit;

WHEREAS, For her project, titled, Girl Power Up, Makenzie Kellogg
began by addressing particular issues that female athletes face while
training for sports; the premise of her project was that female and male
bodies are not meant to maintain the same level of training, endurance
and impact; and

WHEREAS, Makenzie Kellogg decided upon this project because of a
serious injury she obtained while running cross country; she was in a
cast which caused her to miss an entire season and endure a long healing
time as well as physical therapy; and

WHEREAS, This outstanding young woman has been involved in Scouting
for years, has lived up to Scouting's ideals and has attained all of the
necessary achievements; and

WHEREAS, Makenzie Kellogg is a credit to her family, her school, her
community, her State and her Nation, and no doubt her future will be
filled with accomplishments of equal importance; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations, in
recognition of the significance of this meritorious achievement, to

congratulate and honor Makenzie Kellogg upon the occasion of her
designation as recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Makenzie Kellogg.
