Darby Bettenhausen, daughter of Carole and Shane Bettenhausen, recently received the Girl Scout Gold Award in recognition of starting the SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) chapter at the Baker High School two years ago. Bettenhausen, a senior at Baker High School, is also president of SADD.

The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting. Open only to girls in high school, the prestigious award challenges girls to change the world or at least their corner of it. Bettenhausen had to propose her project to the local council and fulfill the requirements to implement her proposed SADD project. She provided 100 hours of community service in achieving her goal.

The mission of the SADD chapter is to provide students with the best prevention tool possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive decisions.

Bettenhausen said, “SADD has served the community by planting a garden by the Fallon Medical Complex Nursing Home, and providing care baskets to its residents and hospital patients. They have also sponsored elementary dances.”

Girl Scout Gold Award recipients rate their general success in life significantly higher and report higher success in reaching their goals within many areas.
