Forty-four Preston Hollow girls received the Gold Award from the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas. It’s the highest award earned by high school Girl Scouts, comparable to the Eagle Scout award in Boy Scouts. To earn the Gold Award, girls must find an issue they’re passionate about, execute projects and fundraising events related to the cause and recruit others to take action. You can find full list of our neighborhood girls who received the award at if you search “Gold Award.”


Preston Hollow resident Shirley Miller, co-founder of Women’s Issues Network, celebrated Women’s Equality Day at a city program and ceremony in August. The 100-plus women who attended the free event wore white to represent the suffragists who lobbied for women to vote.

Another part of the money went toward lingering breast cancer bills.
