Girls Provide Leadership and Service

Cadette Girl Scout Troop 8905 of the Scripps Ranch Service Unit presented a beautifully painted bookshelf filled with children’s books for the babies and small children who live at the Salvation Army’s Door of Hope in Serra Mesa. The presentation was the culmination of hours of work in building and painting the bookshelf and conducting book drives. The girls also donated a portion of their cookie proceeds to buy new children’s books to fill the bookshelf.

Four troop members took a leadership role in four different parts of the project and satisfied part of the requirements for their Girl Scout Silver Awards. They are Jill Foster, Kate Monroe, Taylor Tabin, and Nicole Vande Vooren.

The Silver Award is the highest award available to cadette girl scouts and the second highest award in Girl Scouting. The troop leader is Maria Arroyo Prokop of Scripps Ranch.
