Girl Scout Troop 20 Earns Bronze Award

Girl Scout Troop 20 members Leighton, Maggie, Macy, Annie and Madeline, students at Athens Bible School, Lauren and Ann Marie, home school students, and Isabella, student at Athens Intermediate School, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Mama Relaxation Project. The girls learned to be kind and patient as they babysat younger children for several hours. The girls wanted to give their parents time to re-charge, so they enjoyed giving their parents a break.

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.
