Zoe Rosenberg first joined the Girl Scouts at age five where she became involved in community service, earning badges, and experiencing ‘Girl Scout Journeys’. Before beginning high school, Zoe had already earned the Gold Award – the highest achievement in Girls Scouts.
On February 1st, 2019, Scouts BSA opened membership to female Scouts and that same day, she became one of six founding members of Troop 432 out of Roswell United Methodist Church. Zoe made the easy transition to Scouts BSA having previously joined Venturing when she reached high school. While she enjoyed the high-adventure outings Venturing offered, she ultimately wanted to earn the Eagle Scout award like her older brother.
Working hard as a leader over the next two years, Zoe joined nearly 1,000 young women as part of the inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts in February 2021. She became the third female to earn Eagle Scout in the Atlanta Area Council and the first in the Roswell area. What Zoe has accomplished, earning both Eagle Scout and the Gold Award, is such a rare honor, it has earned her the affectionate nickname of ‘Golden Eagle’ in her family.
Zoe is currently a freshman at Queens University of Charlotte where she is part of their rebranding efforts, thanks to her accolades. She continues to lead the way and give back to the Scouts BSA program.
Her father, Tony Rosenberg, says it best. “Zoe loves the program so much that she has found a Troop in Charlotte and has joined them as an Assistant Scoutmaster while also remaining an Assistant Scoutmaster at her home Troop, Troop 432. She truly realizes that she needs to pay it forward.”
