Troop 287 Earns Bronze Award with Forever Green Project

Troop 287 members Jessie, Molly, Abbi, Gillian, Shelby, Alyssa, Isabelle, Abby and Emily from Thompson Intermediate School; Hannah from Calera Intermediate School; Jerica and Madison, both homeschooled, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award. The girls helped a younger troop earn its Forever Green patch by going to Meadow View Elementary School weekly and teaching the girls how to live “green.” The girls also made recycle bins for the students.

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.
