Recently Troop 536 from Vestavia Hills Elementary Cahaba Heights School (VHECH) earned their Girl Scout Bronze Award through “Girl Scouts Do A Good Turn,” a project they executed over the holiday season.

The troop expanded upon a project they had done for several years to include other troops from their elementary school. The girls worked closely with the school’s guidance counselor to sort items for families within their community. Items were also collected and sorted for residents at Jessie's Place and members of Troop 536 delivered the items. Emelia and MacKenzie, Alex, Isabella, Reilly, Annie, Megann, Kana and Ashley, Maia, Mary Caitlin, Megan, Diane, Jordan and Kandyn were especially motivated to help the community since their neighborhoods were directly affected by the April 2011 tornadoes.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior 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.
