One day in May 2016, Morgan was home with her mother, Katie Bracht, when Katie Bracht became unresponsive. A diabetic, Katie Bracht’s blood sugar level had become dangerously low.

Morgan, a 9-year-old Girl Scout, called her grandparents for help, then called 911. When paramedics arrived, Morgan gave them key medical and demographic information and her mother’s medications, then prepared a meal for her mother to raise her blood sugar level.

Morgan Bracht received the Girl Scout Medal of Honor at a presentation in front of fellow fourth-graders on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, at Hickory Center Elementary School.

The paramedics described Morgan as “calm, courteous, confident and proficient” in the face of a health crisis.
