Scouts earn Silver Awards

Sammy Moore and Robin Thomas of Girl Scout Troop 30871 recently received their Silver Awards. The Silver Award is the highest award a Cadette Girl Scout can earn.

Each girl attended a workshop on the award requirements. They then completed a Journey’s program before they began their work on the Silver Award. The award has requirements that needed to be accomplished along the journey to receiving the award. Each girl also met with their mentor regularly to make sure they were on task to complete each project.

Thomas, a freshman at Warren Area High School, worked to develop a bilingual alphabet book and card activity that will be sent with a deacon from her church on his mission trip to a Spanish speaking country.

Moore, a freshman at Warren County Christian School, completed a project teaching herself and others to knit and crochet baby hats that would be used in Kenya, Africa, for premature babies. The hats control the baby’s temperature therefore giving them a greater chance of survival.

Both girls learned many things during the process.

Moore and Thomas received their Silver Awards at a special ceremony attended by family and friends. The ceremony was followed by a cake and punch reception sponsored by Golden Living Center.

“Troop 30871 salutes these two girls for their efforts in following the Girl Scout Law ‘making the world a better place’ here in Warren and around the globe,” according to a Girl Scout spokesperson.
