Senate Resolution No. 1788


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

  WHEREAS, Through her diligence and rigorous efforts, Kayleigh Woltal
has  achieved  Scouting's  highest  and most prestigious honor, the Girl
Scout Gold Award; the ceremony will be held on Thursday, June  6,  2019,
at East Wind Long Island, Wading River, New York; and

  WHEREAS,  A  resident  of  Commack,  New  York, Kayleigh Woltal is a
member of Girl Scouts of America Troop 842; 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 1919, Senior Girl Scouts have  sought  to  cap  their
years  in  Girl  Scouting  with  the prized Girl Scout Gold Award, which
challenges girls to change the world; and

  WHEREAS, In order to earn the Girl Scout Gold  Award,  a  girl  must
complete   a  rigorous  set  of  service,  leadership  development,  and
skill-building tasks leading  up  to  the  final  and  most  challenging
requirement,  the  design  and completion of a Take Action Project; this
project must be an issue of interest to  the  girl  and  her  community,
employ team-based solutions, and educate and inspire others; and

  WHEREAS,  For  her  project, Kayleigh Woltal asked children to write
their  dreams  and  aspirations  in  her  book  entitled  More  than  4;
unfortunately,  only 4% of United States federal funding is dedicated to
childhood cancer research; 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,  Kayleigh Woltal 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  Kayleigh  Woltal  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 Kayleigh Woltal.
