Kaleigh Ward, a sophomore at Arlington Memorial High School, was nominated to represent Vermont Girl Scouts at the AMVETS Spirit of America Youth Leadership Conference in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. As part of her nomination, Ward received an all-expenses-paid trip recognizing her outstanding leadership skills in Girl Scouting. Students attended from every US state. Ward, who has been a Girl Scout for the past 10 years, attended a variety of leadership workshops during the conference and saw Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and Congress Hall. “I am thankful to be given the opportunity to participate in the Leadership Conference,” she said. “It was a lot of fun, and I made new friends from all over the United States.” Ward is an honors student and graduate of Arlington’s Accelerated Academy; a member of the student council, yearbook staff and environmental club; competes in cross country, basketball and golf; and performs with the school band and chorus. Principal Tim Stewart congratulated Ward. “During this school year, when AMHS is focusing on the values of leadership, it’s great to see one of our students recognized for her contributions. Kaleigh is to be commended for her service to Vermont Girl Scouts.”
