Amanda Diard, Carolynn Gaug, Sarah Gaug and Charlotte Wilson of Raleigh worked together to earn the Silver Award, the second-highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

For their Silver project, the girls renovated and planted a fall vegetable garden at Hope Reins of Raleigh, a faith-based ministry that brings children who have experienced abuse, illness or other hardship into contact with rescued horses.

Amanda is a homeschooled ninth-grader.

Carolynn is a sixth-grader at Franklin Academy, and her sister, Sarah, is a freshman at the Montessori School of Raleigh. They are daughters of Ron and Dawn Gaug.

Charlotte, the daughter of Paul and Rosemarie Wilson, is a freshman at Leesville Road High School.

The girls are members of Troop 3246 in North Raleigh.
