Legislator Steven J.
Flotteron along with Manetuck Elementary School Building Principle Vanessa
Williams and Katie Zajmi congratulated Senior Girl Scout Deah Zajmi, of West Islip
Troop 2376, Service Unit #17, on earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest
recognition a girl can achieve in Scouting.
As a young scout, Deah
had a love for science, which wasn’t what other young girls appreciated. She
wanted to share her passion while making it fun for other junior members of
local Girl Scout Troops. As her Gold Award project, she developed fun
activities demonstrating Stem Science technology to more than 200 seven to
twelve-year-old Girl Scout members within the West Islip Elementary and Middle
Schools over three months.
Ms. Zajmi is a freshman
at Worcester Polly Technical School in Massachusetts studying Chemical
