At 88 years old, she may not be considered young, but she did earn her Young Womanhood Award.
Edith Bronson, who lives north of Plymouth, has worked as a music specialist in the Young Women program in the Belmont First Ward for the last eight years. Recently, the young ladies whom she serves challenged her to work for her Young Womanhood Recognition. The program is a goal-setting program for girls 12-18 in the LDS Church. There are eight areas in which to set goals, along with a 10-hour project for each area.
Bronson told the girl’s “if no one knows about it, I’ll do it.” As she progressed with her project, however, she said she had a change of heart. At first she was embarrassed to be working on it at her age. But then she really got into it. Soon after that, she heard a church leader talk at General Conference, encouraging mothers and grandmothers to work alongside their daughters and granddaughters for the award.
