Jessica Gehrin of Cary has received the Silver Award, the second highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

For her Silver Award project, called Helping C.A.R.E., Jessica set out to improve the lives of animals living in local shelters. She created and distributed pamphlets on animal safety in her community and made homemade dog treats that she sold to raise money for supplies to make beds and blankets for shelter animals.

Jessica is a member of Troop 41, led by Lisa Rorhbach and Bann Bardon.
