Several girls from around the Triangle have earned Silver Awards, the second-highest achievement in Girl Scouting. Here’s what they did for their projects:
Emilie Fairman, Madison Goodwin, Savannah Gunter, Claire Nemeth, Jane Turlington, and Amelia Wade of Raleigh worked with Second Chance Pet Adoptions, a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter, to organize their donation storage area. The shelter depends on pet supplies donations and the staff has little time to organize and sort them.
The girls created a labeling and shelving system and they built a rolling cart that’s used to transport donations from collections sites to the storage area. They also donated blankets, toys and pet food.
Emilie is the daughter of Karol Gioannini and the late Bill Fairman. Madison is the daughter of Melanie and Wayne Goodwin. Savannah Gunter is the daughter of Brook and Glenn Gunter. Claire is the daughter of Jay and Nancy Nemeth. Jane is the daughter of Ed and Marla Turlington. Amelia Wade is the daughter of Dawn and Robert Wade.
Sanjana Tharuvesanchi worked with Spring Arbor retirement home to help brighten up the area for the residents. She designed and created 35 fall wreaths for residents to hang on their doors. She also organized a craft party that allowed the residents to make crafts. To sustain her project, Sanjana set up a website that gives information about her efforts.
Sanjana is the daughter of Vish and Reshma Tharuvesanchi of Apex.
