MORRISTOWN – A Girl Scout who attends Morristown Central School has won a Gold Award for starting a backpack program at her school.

Morgan Wright learned that more than 70 percent of students who attend her school receive free or reduced lunch, and personally witnessed classmates go hungry because they didn’t have resources.

With that in mind, she started the Morristown Backpack Program.

The Girl Scouts Gold Award recognizes girls in grades 9-12 who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable Take Action projects.
