Marquette High senior Nicole Licavoli turned her Girl Scout service project into a way to help her community learn about the new technology being integrated into the daily educational life of Rockwood School District. For her efforts, Licavoli earned the Girl Scout Gold Award from the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri.
The Gold Award is given to a scout who displays "extraordinary leadership through a remarkable community service project." For her project, Licavoli created a website -- crushcommunication.com
-- to help teachers, parents and students learn more about the Chromebooks and other Google products that have become ubiquitous in Rockwood. Licavoli produced 11 step-by-step video tutorials for her site and created informational flyers about the site to distribute to faculty and administrators.
"She's a fantastic student, very involved here at Marquette," said Rick Regina, Marquette High's class of 2020 assistant principal. "She is a true leader and always trying to figure out ways to improve. She's always looking at doing something a little bit different. She's definitely an outside-the-box thinker and very driven. She comes up with a plan and follows through on it."
Licavoli, who also plays golf for the Mustangs, was recognized along with other Gold Award Girl Scouts during a ceremony at Lindenwood University in St. Charles in June.
