Student Earns Girl Scout Honor

Moravia senior Addison Moore recently received the Gold Award — the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn — for her work with developing a farmers market in the community.

Moore worked with local farmers, artisans and vendors to organize a safe and accessible market at the pavilion in the Moravia fairgrounds. After all of the planning, Moore promoted the market through traditional methods and social media.

To qualify for the Gold Award, Moore had to spend a minimum of 80 hours on the project. It turned out to be much more than that.

“The idea behind it is to create something that will last longer than your involvement and will impact your community,” Moore said. 

Moore, whose mother is a local leader, has been involved with Girl Scouts since she was six or seven. 

“It’s always been a big part of my life,” Moore said.

Moore plans to major in architecture when she attends college next year.

“I am so proud of Addison for this outstanding achievement,” High School Principal Jeff Green said. “It gives us great pleasure when our students take the initiative to make a difference in our community.”
