Kirkwood High School Student Earns Girl Scout Gold Award

Kirkwood High School junior Samantha Hepburn completed her Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor a student can achieve in Girl Scouts. Samantha is a junior at Kirkwood High School. Last school year, she applied, implemented, and completed her Gold Award Project. Samantha's project was setting up a sustainable supply of feminine hygiene product for the Ritenour Food Pantry. In addition to holding a feminine hygiene drive and collecting over 14,000 pieces of product, she created a video for the pantry's website discussing the inequities in securing feminine product, and she delivered a sustainable model of acquisition so that Ritenour Food Pantry can always offer product to their clients
