Thompson Students Earn Bronze for Homebound Smiles Project

Paola and Tifany, fifth graders at Thompson 
Intermediate School and members of Girl Scout Troop 761, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Homebound Smiles. The girls made and delivered gift baskets with the Joybelle’s of Alabaster Church of God to homebound seniors. This project was special to the girls because they visited with seniors and designed the gift baskets.

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.
