Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania is honored to present Serena Costello with the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest recognition for achievement in Girl Scouting.
Serena, daughter of Debbie and Kevin Huffman and Rich and Missy Costello and granddaughter of Ron Wicks and Judy and Rich Costello, is a junior at Ringgold High School. Serena is a member of the National Honor Society, a member of the Girls Varsity Tennis Team and an active volunteer at Washington Health System.
As a Girl Scout member for 12 years, Serena was supported in her Gold Award by Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern PA. Along with two donation drives, Serena focused her project on raising awareness within the community on topics that include teenage dating violence, cyber bullying and domestic violence. Serena would like to thank the Peters Township Recreation Center, Finleyville Community Center Committee, Full Circle Karate in Monongahela and American Legion Post #613 in Finleyville for donating their time and resources in support of her awareness efforts.
Her Gold Award project began January 2013 and was completed February 2014.
Serena will graduate in 2015 and plans to go into pharmacy.
