On Sunday, Sept. 18, state Sen. Anna M. Kaplan (D-North Hills) joined Girl Scout Troop 1622 for a ceremony honoring three outstanding young women, Tula Chatterton, Emerson Lucatorto, and Ella Iannitti, upon their earning the highest award in the Girl Scouts, the Gold Award.

Gold Award Girl Scouts are challenged to make a sustainable change in their community by completing a Gold Award Project in their community. Only 5.4% of eligible Girl Scouts successfully earn the Gold Award.

Kaplan said “As recipients of the Gold Award, these remarkable young women join a long, proud tradition of trailblazing leaders who represent the best our communities have to offer. Through their service, they’re not only giving back, but they’re also becoming role models for us all to look up to, and ultimately making our world a better place. I’m so grateful for their service and dedication to our community, and it was my honor to present them each with a Proclamation on behalf of the State of New York in celebration of this milestone.”
