Cullman County's Girl Scout Troop 1150 earns silver award

North-Central Alabama Girl Scouts

CULLMAN — Troop 1150 members recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award. Kara Smith, an eighth grader at Vinemont Middle School earned her award for sprucing up the Vinemont Scout Hut. Originally, all the cleaning supplies were held in an empty bathroom stall, but Kara cleaned up a supply closet and hung shelves for cleaning materials.

Serena Knedlik, a seventh grader at Holly Pond Middle School, earned her award for leading a soccer skills camp for the four-year old class at Sonshine Preschool. Since there are few opportunities for children to learn about the game, Serena decided to put her expertise to good use during the preschool’s summer program.

After collecting and organizing donated clothing, Samantha Drinkwine, a ninth grader at West Point High School, held a clothes drive at the Vinemont Scout Hut for families in need. Samantha donated the leftover items to charity.

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.
