Troop 993 Earns Silver Award

Thompson Middle School students and members of Girl Scout Troop 993 members Leah, Tabitha, Jamie and Sarah recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for their project Crafting and Snacking. Once a month for one year, the girls visited the elderly at Riverchase Village Nursing Home, teaching art and serving snacks. At the end of the project, the girls held a talent and art show, sang Christmas carols and presented the residents with a scrapbook of their time there. 

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette (grades 6-8) 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.
