Jemison High Freshman Earns Silver Award

Kelly, a freshman at Jemison High School and member of Girl Scouts Troop 340, earned the Girl Scout Silver Award by providing shelving for a younger Girl Scout troop to keep their supplies for meetings. Before the shelf, the troop had to transport their supplies to and from meetings because they had no storage. She hopes that by reaching out to local business owners in her community for donations, the owners will be more willing to help Girl Scouts 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.
