Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts (GSEMA) has congratulated Katie Hurwitz of Walpole for earning a Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts Scholarship. Each year, the council presents scholarships to local graduating Girl Scouts. Katie was awarded one of two scholarships valued at $1,500.

Katie is a senior at Walpole High School. A Girl Scout since Daisy level, Katie has earned the organization’s highest awards for outstanding community service – the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards. With her Girl Scout Gold Award, Katie shared her passions for creative expression through writing, and she ran a program for middle school children, teaching about the varied genres of writing. Noted authors were brought in to speak to the students, writing workshops were held, a community literary journal was created, and Katie inspired the community to embrace writing as a creative outlet.

At Walpole High School, Katie was in the orchestra as the principal cellist, a member of the writing club, founder of the Random Acts of Kindness Club, an active writer as the managing editor for the Rebellion Newspaper, and a member of the National Honor Society.

“I was a shy Daisy," said Hurwitz, "but over the years, my spark grew with more confidence, and I now am ignited with everything the Girl Scout spirit encompasses: the insight to incite the flame, compassion for its combustion, and a spark of joy that is a byproduct of following my passions.”

She plans on attending Salve Regina University, double majoring in elementary education and music, and minoring in creative writing. Katie hopes to become a first grade teacher, a published author and a performing cellist.
