SOMERS, N.Y. - Somers High School senior Jordan Schmitt received the Girl Scout Gold Award - the highest Girl Scout honor available - recently at the Girl Scout Heart of the Hudson Gold Award Ceremony Saturday at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel.

Schmitt's Gold Award project - titled 'Improving Mental Health of United States Veterans Around the World,' - focused on raising awareness for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and involved 'reaching out to soldiers overseas with items made in workshops to bring a little piece of home to them,' as well as 'making people aware of how rescued animals can help veterans improve the mental health.'

Schmitt, a Girl Scout since kindergarten, is also Vice President of the Executive Student Council.
