Priscilla Ruelan has just begun her seventh year as a Girl Scout Cadette in Troop 32049. She has participated in many community service projects with her Girl Scout sisters. One of her most memorable was working at a local nursing home getting their flower beds started again. She loved when the residents tried to bribe the troop for pizza because they couldn’t eat it.
Through the years she has completed many badges at each Girl Scout level. Her biggest accomplishment so far has been earning her Bronze Award when she was a fifth grade junior. The Bronze Award is one of the three highest awards to be earned by a Girl Scout. She is looking forward to earning her Silver Award as a middle schooler. And then going on to earn her Gold Award in high school.
This past October 4, 2017, Priscilla had the honor to be a part of the color guard for the 54th National Girl Scout Convention as flag bearer. She carried flags representing the countries of Cook Islands and Haiti. It wasn’t until the next day that knew she carried those flags in front of over 10,000 people! It is truly an honor to be a member of the color guard for Girl Scout Convention. There was a waiting list of girls hoping someone would get sick so they could have the opportunity to be a flag bearer.
Priscilla’s favorite things about Convention were carrying the flags and representing Girl Scouts, the State of Ohio, as well as, the countries of Cook Islands & Haiti. She also loved meeting new friends that day. Her newest Girl Scout sister only lives an hour away!
Once the business side of Convention was over she went home to rest up for the fun that was to come on Saturday. Going back to convention this day meant that she got to enjoy lots of STEM activities and 3D printing! She enjoyed sharing this experience with her Girl Scout sisters. Priscilla is looking forward to working with NASA in the future.
