Two Girl Scout Gold Awardees will also be recognized for their achievements and leadership. Myra Dotzel, a junior at Parkway Central High School, and Jessica Thoelke, a senior at Ladue Horton Watkins High School, will each receive a $5,000 Dessert First scholarship for higher education. Myra organized and led a supply drive benefitting the VA Medical Center at Jefferson Barracks for her Gold Award project, while Jessica Thoelke created and taught a coding club for middle schoolers in her community.
