The South Pasadena City Council presented a certificate of recognition to a South Pasadena High School student Wednesday night in recognition of her exemplary leadership in completing an environmental education project that won her the highest honor in girl scouting.
Anneliese Sloss received the certificate from Mayor Richard D. Schneider at the City Council’s Sept. 5 meeting, seven months after she first appeared before the council and gave a speech to its board members as well as the city’s Natural Resources and Environmental Commission about her project.
Sloss was given girl scouting’s top honor, the Gold Award, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on June 9. The award was given in appreciation for two of her outstanding achievements.
The first was a project titled “The People’s Plastic Pollution Problem,” which made elementary school children aware of the hazards of plastic pollution.
Sloss’s second achievement was to create a public service announcement in the form of a coloring book for children, titled “A Day in the Life of a Plastic Bag.”
