Girl Scouts Gold Award Honoree briefs Commissioners

This morning in public hearing, Sarah Griechen founder of the Score-A-Friend Inc., and Colorado Girl Scouts 2016 Gold Award honoree, spoke to the Mesa County Commissioners about her foundation, which helps schools create clubs for kids with disabilities

Inspired by her twin brother who has an autism spectrum disorder,  Sarah started a non-profit organization, "Score a Friend," to promote and support youth to lead school-based unified clubs for students of all abilities to access sports, electives, and friendship.

Sarah was also one out of ten young women named National Young Woman of Distinction by Girl Scouts of the USA, a prestigious nationwide honor.

Sarah told the Mesa County Commissioners she wants everyone to feel welcome and valued. Her foundation fosters inclusive groups and extracurricular activities for kids with disabilities to find friendship and community. 

Earlier this year, Sarah also received the Stephanie A. Foote Leadership Prize for Gold Award Excellence. Sarah was given this award because of her ongoing impact and leadership skills.

After her briefing, the Board of Mesa County Commissioner presented Sarah with a Certificate of Recognition for being an exemplary young woman who demonstrates innovation, and whose motivational involvement has improved schools and communities across the nation.
