Freshman Earns Girl Scout Gold Award

Sophia Limbert has been a Girl Scout in three different countries. 

Sophia Limbert ’23 has earned a Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts, for her work to develop an art therapy program for underserved teens. She created and executed the 8-week art therapy program at Lifehouse, a Christian organization that provides housing and support for homeless pregnant teens. In addition, Sophia developed a website that includes step-by-step tutorials for each of her lesson plans along with information about art therapy and LifeHouse. 

Sophia was inspired to pursue this project due to volunteer experiences she had with her Girl Scout troop while living in Indonesia. Her troop in Indonesia focused on helping poverty-stricken and neglected populations. Sophia spent several months volunteering at an orphanage and grew a heart for serving young children and families in need.

Earning a Gold Award as a 9th grader is an outstanding accomplishment because most awardees are upperclassmen. Sophia plans to continue her work with Troop 18963 at Duchesne throughout her high school career.
