Fulton Schools electrical engineering student Rachel Rhoades’ ingenuity recently earned her the highest honor bestowed by the Girls Scouts.

A former long-time Girl Scout and marching band musician, the freshman undertook a “music-hygiene” project for the band at the high school from which she graduated.

Her efforts to help protect the health of band members and teach them how to keep their expensive instruments in good working condition brought her the much sought-after Girl Scout Gold Award.

The full story is published in her hometown newspaper, the Ahwatukee Foothills News.
