Local teens earns Girl Scout Silver Award

Trudy Rogers, Victoria Pride, Julia Shepstone, Bailey Northington and Gustaline Samba from Girl Scout Troop 28103 -Rainbow Stars Service Unit recently marked a major milestone with the successful completion of their Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest achievement a Girl Scout Cadette can receive.

To earn this award, a girl must dedicate herself to completing a Take Action project that addresses a need in her community and makes a lasting difference. To earn the Girl Scout Silver Award, girls in sixth through eighth grade must fulfill requirements related to leadership, career exploration and community service.

The silver take action project had three components. The girls adopted the Sugar Land Animal Rescue Center.  The girls’ project was called “Help a Puppy Pal”.  They sponsored a Peanut Butter and Kong Toy Drive through Parkway United Methodist Church.  They also made toys and blankets for the dogs and cats, volunteered time to replace the old cat toys in cages, and finally designed, built and installed a set of agility steps for dog physical therapy and training at the center.
