Fairbury Girl Scout “Goes Gold”

Fairbury Girl Scout, Samantha Roskilly, daughter of Brian and Karen Roskilly of Fairbury was honored with a Girl Scout Gold Award. The Gold Award is granted by the Girl Scout Spirit of Nebraska and represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting. 
“I was really excited, because I had actually been turned down once before, but I tried again and was approved,” Roskilly said. “I went to the Ceremony at the Nebraska State Capital and out of the five girls in my Girl Scout troop, I was the only one to receive the Gold Award.”
Roskilly, with her multiphase project, earned the award by going above and beyond to improve the lives of others. She taught technology skills and e-reader classes through the Fairbury Public Library and worked with a long-term care facility to bring story time to the residents.
