MEDFORD, Ore. -- A local Girl Scout is one step closer to earning the organizations most prestigious award.
Jamie Bazen is working towards her Gold Award. As part of the project, she's painting a mural at the Children's Advocacy Center in Medford.
“I felt that they were doing a good thing and I could help children who were in more dire situations than I am," said Bazen.
Bazen said it took her 28 hours to get the sketch right before painting the mural. Her goal was to finishing painting it Wednesday. Then she plans to add a calligraphy sketched quote.
“I chose the quote, 'Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul — and sings the tunes without the words — and never stops at all.' Simply because it was inspiring to me and felt that it would inspire hope to other people that saw it, other children," said Bazen.
According to the Girl Scouts, the Gold Award is awarded to fewer than 6 percent of Girl Scouts annually. Each Gold Award Girl Scout spends one to two years on her project. They need to put a minimum of 80 hours toward the project.
