Diya Damodaran, 2023 Girl Scout Gold Award Recipient

  • Diya collaborated with students at McKinney Montessori Preschool to provide them with hands-on experience in understanding the origins of their food. With the help of volunteers, Diya created a permanent garden at the school. Diya planned and then hosted several sessions where children could learn about different types of fruits and vegetables, how vegetables grow, how to identify healthy and nutritious food, and get first-hand experience outside as they learned to care for the plants. The students also received take-home kits to grow produce including easy recipes. The school will maintain the garden and use supplies and materials Diya left as needed. Diya will graduate from Plano East Senior High School in 2024.
