Troop 364 Earns Silver Award

Troop 364 members Gabrielle and Kaleigh of Oak Mountain decided they wanted to help children in the Kids First Awareness afterschool program prepare for the new school year by collecting school supplies and building backpack racks. The girls were responsible for determining what supplies were needed based on monies available and donations received. With help from Asbury United Methodist Church members, the girls were able to donate 50 backpacks. The girls then installed racks sturdy enough to support the weight of heavy backpacks.

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.
