Scout Gold Award; the ceremony will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2022; and

WHEREAS, Grace E. Ryan is a member of Girl Scouts of America Troop
1071; and

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

youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain her glory; and

the development of character and leadership in the youth of this Nation;

WHEREAS, Since 1916, Senior Girl Scouts have sought to cap their
years in Girl Scouting with the prized Girl Scout Gold Award, which

employ team-based solutions, and educate and inspire others; and

for years, has lived up to Scouting's ideals and has attained all of the
necessary achievements; and

WHEREAS, Grace E. Ryan is a credit to her family, her school, her

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 Grace E. Ryan upon the occasion of her
