The Morris County Freeholders have presented a Certificate of Achievement to Girl Scout Ashley Taylor Nichols for attaining the Girl Scout’s prestigious Gold Award.
The 17-year-old from Jefferson was a patient for 12 days in that unit in 2012, and while there, she said she was very homesick. She said she made the blankets as a way of making patients’ stay in the unit more comfortable.
Freeholder Director Tom Mastrangelo presented Nichols with the Certificate on behalf of the entire freeholder board during the board’s Oct. 8 public meeting in Morristown, and congratulated her for “demonstrating strong values, character, leadership skills and social conscience.”
