Gracie, a freshman at Spain Park High School and member of Girl Scout Troop 116, recently earned her Girl Scout Silver Award. Gracie took a stand against bullying by placing a bench in a local middle school. She also created a Facebook page against bullying and used a puppet show to teach younger girls that bullying is wrong. She hopes people will think before they say or do something hurtful because of her project.
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.
