A Tucson high school student was recognized in Washington for earning the Girl Scouts' highest honor.
Courtney Shelton, a senior at Flowing Wells High School, visited with Rep. Ron Barber at his Washington, DC office after being recognized for being awarded the Girl Scouts Gold Award.
Shelton is one of only 17 Girl Scouts in the country to receive the award, which challenges high school girls to devise a seven-step project to solve a community problem.
Shelton earned the award with her Self-Esteem Community Project. She will be presented with the award in April.
Shelton was accompanied by her mother, Shelley Shelton and Debbie Rich, the CEO of the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona.
