Troop 47 Earns Bronze Award

Kayla, Caylee, Karissa and Skyler, fifth graders at Fayette Middle School and members of Girl Scout Troop 47, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project To Be a Helper in Our Community. The girls helped with several projects in their community, including organizing a daycare, cleaning a cemetery and neighborhood and helping an older Girl Scout earn her Gold Award by painting a bathroom at the city park.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
