Hartsell earns Girl Scoutsí Gold Award
Taylor Hartsell, a freshman in the radiology program at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest and most prestigious award in Girl Scouting.
Taylorís Gold Award project was assisting the neonatal unit at Levine Childrenís Hospital in a project called Blankets of Hope. Blankets are used to cover the isolates and the foam shapes Levine uses to cuddle the babies. The hospital also makes molds of the feet and hands of babies who do not survive for the parents as keepsakes, and Taylor designed a ìpocketî to hold the molds.
Taylor organized two sewing parties consisting of 14 women, fellow scouts and her cousin, Linda. Together they made 15 isolate blankets, 85 flannel blankets and 62 pockets.
