Erin Grace, fifth grader at Southside Elementary School and a member of Girl Scout Troop 663, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for her clothing drive project. Erin collected clothes for First United Methodist Church of Attalla for her sister’s clothes closet. She learned how to get more organized and that there are many people who need clothes for their new families.
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.
