Congratulations to Girl Scout Kendall C., from Orange County, on receiving her Gold Award. Read more about Kendall's project and the Gold Award below!
For her Gold Award project, Kendall started a Green Club at Oak Ridge Military Academy so other cadets at her school could participate in the care and management of the school grounds. The club charter will be to accomplish environmentally oriented service projects to beautify and improve the school grounds. In addition to founding the club, Kendall organized the repair of a bridge, construction of a compost bin and a future butterfly bush planting.
The council congratulates Kendall on this tremendous achievement and contribution to her community!
