Congratulations to Sarah Greichen, class of 2017, who earned a Gold Award for citizenship and leadership from the Girl Scouts on Monday, May 2, 2016. The gold award is the highest honor given. In addition to the award, Sarah also won the Stephanie A. Foote Leadership Prize, which includes a $1,000 scholarship.

The awards were earned for Sarah’s work in creating the non-profit organization called Score A Friend. The mission of Score A Friend is to promote and support youth to lead school-based unified clubs for students of all abilities; connecting schools with community providers and resources; and creating access and opportunities for unified sports, unified friendships, parent-to-parent connections, and the education and activation of youth leaders to build inclusion in the world.

The inception of Score A Friend began in 2012, when Sarah committed herself to helping her twin brother, who has an Autism Spectrum Disorder, find a friend. Due to his disorder, Sarah’s brother experienced a lack of both friends and inclusion in school clubs and sports. Determined to change this for him and other children and teens with disabilities, Sarah started researching disabilities, public laws, personal rights, inclusion, community resources, and much more. Armed with this research and a passion for inclusion for all students, Score A Friend was born.

Front Range Christian School’s Score A Friend Club launched the week of March 14, 2016.

It’s exciting to see our students impacting the world for Christ! Congratulations on your awards and scholarship, Sarah.
