Nine Girl Scout Juniors from St. Charles Parish Troop 20024 recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Junior in grades 4-5 can achieve.
They are Isabella Distefano, Sophia Distefano, Bracie Jones, Laurel Kennedy, Gillian Kimble, Sophia Matylis, Katelyn Moore, Lauren Shavor and Caitlin Wright. The award requires the completion of a series of leadership challenges that are appropriate to their Girl Scout level and prepares them for their final take action project.
The Girl Scout Juniors wanted to create awareness of the issue of hunger in St. Charles Parish. They conducted food drives with donated items going to local food banks in the parish. Their project advisor was Michelle Distefano.
