Cary Girl Scouts receive Silver Awards
Six Cary area Girl Scouts have received the Silver Award, which is the second highest achievement in Girl Scouting. Sydney Johnson
is the daughter of Tyler and Jamie Johnson. For her Silver Award project, she collected craft donations for children at UNC Hospitals. She then assembled 400 kits, which included beads, a lanyard and lanyard clip, as well as directions for the children to make a small bead animal. She then delivered the kits to the UNC Pediatric Oncology Clinic.
Johnson is in the ninth grade and is home-schooled. She is a member of Girl Scout Troop 1860. Camille Latour
is the daughter of Dominique and Joanne Latour. Allison Renke
is the daughter of Robert and Paula Renke. For their Silver Award project, the girls jointly created a school wide waste paper recycling program at St. Michael School, significantly reducing the amount of paper thrown into landfills by their school.
Latour now attends Cardinal Gibbons High School and Renke attends Green Hope High School. Both girls are members of Girl Scout Troop 1323. Emma Earley
is the daughter of Matt and Lisa Earley. For her Silver Award project, she wanted to encourage younger students to become interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math subjects. She set up a science lab at Morrisville Elementary School and built a rotting-log box and butterfly habitat. She also created posters, donated microscopes, set up aquariums and volunteered at the science fair.
Earley attends Cary High School and is a member of Girl Scout Troop 1799. Charlotte Nixon
is the daughter of Joseph and Kerry Nixon. Elizabeth Pedersen
is the daughter of Craig and Jane Pedersen. For their Silver Award project, the girls designed and distributed fliers and brochures together to raise awareness of Holly Springs Parks and Recreations Department’s Buddy Sports program.
Nixon attends Dillard Drive Middle School and Pedersen attends Lufkin Road Middle School. Both girls are members of Girl Scout Troop 1860.
