Emily Lowman receives Gold

Emily Lowman, daughter of Jody and Connie McLaughlin Lowman of Linwood, was presented the Girl Scout Gold Award  Jan. 8, 2012, at Concordia Lutheran Church in China Grove, where she is member. The Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn, combining leadership development, career exploration, self-improvement and community service, culminating in a 65-hour project.
Emily’s Gold Award project was sewing “I.V. Snuggies for Comfort” for the children at The Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital in Concord. The fleece fabric covers the I.V. in a child’s arm during their stay at the hospital to help the young patient deal with the sight of the needle in their arm. Sewing parties were held at Emily’s church to make the Snuggies, with help from church members, fellow Girl Scouts and friends in the community.
Emily also collected personal care items for the families staying with their sick child. Personal care items, coloring books and crayons were donated by local businesses and personal care items were received from the church and collection bins placed in the community. In late July, Emily delivered 1,110 I.V. Snuggies, 500 coloring books, 300 packs of crayons and over 650 personal care items to the hospital.
This is Emily’s 11th year in scouting. As a Brownie, she earned 25 Try-Its and the Brownie Safety Awards. As a Junior, Emily earned 13 badges, the Sign of the Rainbow, Sign of the Star, Junior Leadership Award, the Silver Award, Junior Safety Award and the Junior Aide Award. As an older Girl Scout, she earned 11 IPP’s, four Studio-2B awards, Cadette Girl Scout Challenge, From Dreams to Reality award, Cadette Leadership Award, Cadette Safety Award, two Community Service awards (50 hours), a Service to Girl Scouts Bar and the Silver Award. Emily is a Four-Star God and Country Award recipient, earning the God and Me, God and Family, God and Life and God and Church awards.
A junior at West Davidson High School, Miss Lowman  plans to study medicine and become a Pediatric Cardiologist.
