Madison Girl Scouts Win Silver Award by Helping School

Ashley and Rory, 8th graders at Madison's St. John the Baptist Catholic School and members of Girl Scout Troop 143, recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award. The girls noticed that the students and teachers needed a clean place to store their instruments and teaching supplies in the music room. Ashley and Rory built large shelves to store band instruments and cleaned and organized the St. John the Baptist Catholic School’s band and music room supply closet. The girls say they learned woodworking, teamwork and organizational skills. The impact that Ashley and Rory have made on the school will continue to benefit both teachers and students into the future.

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.
