Alwyn and Greer Earn Silver Award

Troop 10088 members Alwyn from Cedar Ridge Middle School in Decatur, and Greer, a student at St. Ann Catholic School also in Decatur, earned the Silver Award by hosting a family fun day at a Decatur animal shelter. The goal was to promote animal awareness at the shelter in hopes of increasing the chances for the animals to be adopted. The girls handed out flyers, researched and created brochures, collected donations and rallied Girl Scouts and other volunteers for the cause. The girls provided valuable exposure for the shelter and informed many members of the community of the issue at hand.

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.
