Troop 79 Earns Silver Award

The girls of Troop 79, all students at Bumpus Middle School, have been busy in their community. Lydia earned the Silver Award by designing invitations and a photo backdrop for her service unit’s annual dance. Using paint and a large piece of canvas, Lydia created a fairy tale-themed backdrop for the attendees to take photos in front of at the event. She hopes that her photo backdrop will be used for many dances to come.

Christina earned the Silver Award by increasing art education awareness for small children who do not have access to art enrichment programs. Christina created numerous art kits that included activities geared towards the children’s interests and age group. With help from parents and volunteers, many children were able to unleash their creativity and produce their own work of art. The kits were made available at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Alexis earned the Silver Award by sprucing up the memorial
garden belonging to one of the young members of her church who passed away. Alexis painted a bench, pulled weeds, laid new pine bark and added a stepping stone to the memorial. She hopes that those who pass by will acknowledge its beauty and keep it looking beautiful in the future.

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.
