Troop 766 Earns Silver Award

Troop 766 members Deja, a student at Brighton Middle School from Birmingham, and Destiny, a student at Rutledge Middle School from Midfield, earned the Silver Award by selling cookies to raise money for those affected by the earthquakes in Haiti. With the help of news stations, radio stations and local stores, the girls were able to sell enough cookies to raise $1000 for the victims. In addition, the girls also sent cookies to soldiers serving in Iraq.

Epic Middle School students Sydney and Brittany, both from Hoover, earned the Silver Award by volunteering at the Fairview Nursing Home. The girls sang songs, played games and chatted with the residents of the nursing home who had no family to communicate with. The girls also made gift baskets and goody bags for the residents in hopes of bringing a little joy to their day.

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.
