Hoover High alumna Victoria Pinkerton recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award.
Victoria Pinkerton, a graduate of Hoover High School and a freshman at Mississippi State University, recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award. She earned her Gold Award for her project, Hymns for the Heart. Her project focused on providing music therapy for the residents at South Haven Nursing Home. She recorded a CD of several hymns, which she played on the piano, and she gave each resident a copy of the CD. She hopes that when residents are lonely or bored, their minds will stay active by listening to the CDs. Through her project she discovered a stronger sense of self, and she is now considering music therapy as a possible career path.
“I think my leadership skills will grow drastically from this project. I learned how to assess the problem, plan accordingly, and take initiative to complete necessary steps,” said Pinkerton.
