One Young Women group found a beautiful way to bond while helping a woman with cerebral palsy finally earn her Young Women Recognition Medallion. 

A group of young women rallied around Erin Norton, a 35-year-old woman with disabilities and showed their love by earning the LDS Young Womanhood Recognition Medallion on her behalf.

She received the medallion on Wednesday at an award ceremony in Sandy.

Each girl participated by spending 10 hours on a project personalized to Norton's interests.

“The idea came about when I taught the Laurels a lesson about service, like a year ago,” said Schonie Erickson, the previous Laurel Advisor in the Pinecrest LDS Ward. “I’ve always had a soft spot for people with disabilities. I have a few friends with disabilities but I’d never heard of anything like this.”
