POCOPSON — The board of Township Supervisors honored Natalie Guarino for reaching the highest level of Girl Scouting: the Gold Award, during Monday night’s board meeting.

Gaurino, a senior at Unionville High School, is a member of Troop 4434, and recently completed her Gold Service Project — at the Adult Care Centers of Chester County.

“My project was entitled Rolling Resources,” she said in her application. “In order to ease the staff at the Adult Care Centers of Chester County, and make craft time more enjoyable, I designed and built two rolling storage carts designed to transport crafts to and from the storage closes. After speaking to the head of one of the centers, I realized how inefficient craft time was. The staff was busy carrying supplies to the clients, instead of spending as much time as possible making the crafts. In order to ease this problem, I created a three-shelf cart with handles as well as decorations and wheels to add a fun and resourceful part to the craft time. I also led three craft days, where I provided the materials and helped the clients make the crafts.”

Guarino has been a scout for 13 years. In addition to her scouting career, she is an honor student, a member of the National Honor Society, and the Spanish Honors Society. She also plays Clarinet in the UHS Marching and symphonic bands. She has also served as a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
