7 Local girl scouts awarded
Cadette Troop 21448 Silver Award 2012 recipients are Lindsey Rhodes, Elaine Mitchell, Coya Hurst (front row) and Aisosa Ogunbor, Cassidy Lewis, and Laura Sullivan (second row). Not pictured is Mignon Mauduit.
Those who received the award are Coya Hurst, Cassidy Lewis, Mignon Mauduit, Elaine Mitchell, Aisosa Ogunbor, Lindsey Rhodes and Laura Sullivan of Destrehan Girl Scout Cadette Troop 21448. Earning the Girl Scout Silver Award exemplifies a Girl Scout’s commitment to helping others and making a difference in their community. The Girl Scout Silver Award requires the completion of a series of leadership challenges that prepares them for their final "take action" project that involves approximately 50 hours of work.
The Girl Scout Cadettes decided to see if they could stop the stereotypes by creating a video whose message is to watch your words as they can hurt others, even if it wasn’t meant that way. Their "Take Action" project advisor was DeAnn Sullivan.
