Foothill junior receives Girl Scouts Gold Award

Singhal's project brought 'Medical Occupations Career Night' to Kaiser Oakland

Pleasanton resident Aanya Singhal, a junior at Foothill High, recently received a Gold Award -- the highest honor presented by the Girl Scouts -- in recognition of her project creating the inaugural "Medical Occupations Career Night" at Kaiser Permanente hospital in Oakland.

Nearly 50 under-represented East Bay high-schoolers attended the event, hearing from speakers across the medical and hospital administration fields and taking part in interactive activities.

Singhal also sits as a student member on the Girl Scouts of Northern California Board of Directors.
