Lucy McNamee of Cary has received the Silver Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouts.
For her Silver project, Lucy set up a photo booth to take pictures of families unable to afford professional family portraits. After doing a great deal of research about photography, she took the photos herself. Lucy partnered with Lindsey Bui of the Carying Place in order to identify families who would benefit from this project. The Carying Place is an organization in Cary that teaches homeless, working families with children life skills for independent living while providing short-term housing and support. Lucy gave each family a printed copy of their photo as well as digital copies on CD.
Lucy, the daughter Greg and Sally McNamee, is a member of Troop 1860, led by Wanda Schramm and Nancy Moody.
