Abbie & Katherine Earn Silver Award

Troop 340 members Abbie from Thorsby High School and Katherine from Clanton Middle School recently earned their Girl Scout Silver Award for raising awareness about childhood obesity. The girls adopted a Brownie troop for six months and taught them about healthy alternatives to high-calorie snacks, and the importance of exercise. To help the younger girls out at home, Abbie and Katherine created recipe books for each girl.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette's accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others.
