Shoreham, NY - June 22, 2016 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended the Girl Scout Gold Award ceremony for Skylar Intravaia at the North Shore Public Library on Tuesday, June 14th. Skylar Intravaia, an Ambassador Girl Scout from Rocky Point, earned her Gold Award by designing and implementing a social group program for children with autism in the Rocky Point School District.

“I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Skylar for receiving her Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts” said Legislator Anker. “Through her hard work and dedication, she has overcome challenges in her life to help others and is a source of inspiration for her community.”

Skylar was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when she was 9-years-old and was inspired to create a project to help children in her community overcome the challenges of having autism.
