Spain Park Students Earn Silver with Jag Walk Project

Regan and Madison, ninth graders at Spain Park High School and members of Girl Scout Troop 116, recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for their project Jag Walk. The girls helped create a walking path around the school so that people can exercise and fight obesity. They made a PowerPoint presentation, brochure, painted the path, spoke to the PTO and raised awareness about the walking path at Berry Middle School’s registration. Doing this project taught the girls public speaking and leadership skills. Regan and Madison hope people will use the walking path to become happier and healthier.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette's accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others.
