When Girl Scout Cadettes focus on an issue they care about, learn the facts, and take action to make a difference, they gain the confidence and skills that will catapult them to lifelong success. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Silver Award – the highest honor a Cadette in grades 6-8 can achieve.
This year’s class of Silver Award Girl Scouts who were honored at the annual Recognition of Excellence ceremony on Sunday, May 21, include several girls from the Clinton County area:
Anna Carr, Reegan Jones, Baylie Lingle, and Rachael Staley from Troop #8747 from the Clinton/Washington County area were recognized for their project Parent’s Night Out
Jaydn Dees and Isabelle Lovin from Troop #8747 from the Clinton/Washington County area were recognized for their project Adopt-A-Grandparent
