Girl Scouts beautify school campuses

January 19, 2014 

Kimberly Gebbia and Sophie DeRosa, both of Cary, have received the Silver Award, the second-highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

For their Silver project, Flowers for Schools, the girls completed landscaping projects at two local schools. They planted 247 gladiolus bulbs in the carpool loop at Lufkin Road Middle School in Apex, and at Oak Grove Elementary in Raleigh, they first improved the drainage in three large planter boxes that had been built by fifth-graders and then worked with school administrators to choose plants and fill the boxes with them.

Kimberly and Sophie both are members of Troop 1379, led by Susie Childers and Pam Haley.
