Troop 1467 Turns Trash to Treasures

Girl Scout Troop 1467 members Sarah, Jamiya, Shelby, Christy, Chloe, Marissa, Stacey, Meagan, Kierstn and Jaria  of Williams Elementary School recently earned their Bronze Award. The troop placed recycling bins in the teachers’ lounges to collect empty cans. Before selling the cans at the local collection center, the girls made bracelets out of the tabs. With the money they made from selling the cans, the girls purchased a few new books for the school’s library.

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.
