Jensen Warnock, a senior at Clay High School and Ambassador Girl Scout in Troop 1190, recently earned her Gold Award.  The Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious achievement within Girls Scouts and it is the equivalent to the Eagle Scout Award.  It is the most difficult Girl Scout Award to earn – only 5% of eligible Girls Scouts successfully earn the Gold Award.

Girls identify a need in their community and resolve to make a plan to take action to address it.  Jensen’s project was entitled “Set to Win.”

Jensen is a three-sport athlete in volleyball, basketball, and softball.  As a youth, Jensen played Little League softball and biddy basketball.  Jensen wanted to address the lack of opportunity for young girls to play volleyball before they reach junior high. 

Jensen organized a summer camp for Clay students in grades four through eight and started a fall instructional league that took place on Sundays in September.  Clay High School volleyball teammates assisted with the camp and the league.

Many girls attended, learned, and competed while learning volleyball fundamentals.  Jensen hopes this will continue every year in order for girls to gain confidence and be ready to play in junior high.

Jensen has been a girl scout since kindergarten and has previously earned the Bronze and Silver Awards.
