Girl Scouts of Troop 730 Earn Bronze Award

Brynn and Jordan, students at Jemison Middle School, and Grace, student at Clanton Intermediate School, and members of Troop 730, earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Get Moving Jemison! The girls wanted to educate the community about the importance of exercise and living a healthier lifestyle, so they passed out flyers about different events. They also took a challenge to complete a marathon one mile at a time. To complete the project, the girls worked with Get Moving Jemison, Inc. The Harlem Globe Trotters performed at one of the events.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) 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.
