In scouting, the highest rank you can achieve as a youth is the Eagle Scout Award. There are long hours of learning, camping, and working to get this award. Many do not receive this award until around 16 or 17 years of age. If a young man does receive this award by 14 or 15 it is usually a sign of dedication, and perserverance.
In the Young Women program of the LDS Church, there is an equally hard award to earn which is called Young Womanhood Medallion. The program is called “Personal Progress“. Many young women in the LDS Church are not able to earn this award at a young age but work over the 6 year in the program and receive it when they are 16 or 17.
HOWEVER, I am proud to announce that Savanna Carter, my daughter, has earned her Young Womanhood Medallion and was presented the medallion in church last Sunday by our new Bishop. I am very excited for her and proud of her accomplishment. What made these event even more sweet was that Deanna, her mother, my wife, also earned her medallion too since adults can earn this award as well. HOW COOL IS THAT!!!
Congratulations Savanna and Deanna on their hard work in the LDS Young Women’s program.
Below is a small video showing Savanna’s final project. She made a little stuffed caterpillar for all of the nursery kids to use when they go for a walk around the church. The leaders love it because it keeps all of the kids together. The children love it because it has a fun look and loops to hold on to.
