Troop 531 Earns Bronze Award with Loving Library Project

Girl Scout Troop 531 members Heather, Olivia, Angie, Mya, Olivia, Shelby, Hannah and Katherine, sixth graders at Brock’s Gap Intermediate School, and Juliana, sixth grader at Prince of Peace, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Loving Library. The girls gathered donated books from Hoover area schools to place on a shelf for the patients at Children’s Hospital. Their project taught the girls public speaking skills as they traveled to the different schools asking for help with the project, and they also learned the importance of helping others.

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.
