Two area Girl Scouts have earned highest scouting honors, the Silver and Gold Awards.
Rebecca Guy, a graduate of Hoover High School, recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award for her project Fun Run to Fight Obesity.
Her project focused on getting people to be more active with each other. Rebecca organized for her church to run one mile around the church’s playground. As they ran, they read signs with helpful tips about how to stay active and live a healthy lifestyle. Rebecca thought it was important to get people to interact while being active, since the prevalence of social media does not encourage face-to-face interaction.
Charlotte McCrary, a freshman at Spain Park High School and member of Girl Scout Troop 116, recently earned her Girl Scout Silver Award. Charlotte made stepping stones for a local organization that provides underserved children with academic and recreational activities. She included motivational words on the stones to encourage children. She hopes to return next year to help the children make their own stones.
