Girl Scout Troop 1105 members Michelle Herrick and Lily Whitesell, students at West Point Intermediate, Maggie Holloway, student at Cullman Christian School and Dominique Hartmann, a home school student, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Helping Hands. The girls knew two couples trying to adopt two children from Haiti. As they waited throughout the long process, the girls wanted to do something to help them, so they made picture frames and cards for them. As they worked on the project, the girls also learned about international adoptions.
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.
