Several Triangle girls have earned Silver Awards, the Girl Scouts’ second highest achievement. Here’s what they did for their projects:
▪ Megan Rogers of Wake Forest partnered with Safe Space, an organization that helps families dealing with domestic violence, to create and publish copies of three activity books for kids at the Safe Space shelter.
She also donated board games and and school and craft supplies that can be used with the activity books.
Megan installed two bookshelves at the shelter and filled them with more than 1,000 books she collected through donations – enough to let kids keep the books they like.
Megan is the daughter of Dave and Carolyn Rogers.
▪ Savannah Blalock of Youngsville teamed up with Project Appleseed, a nonprofit that hosts monthly events focused on teaching the history of the American Revolution, to help build steps on a steep hill on the organization’s property.
She also renovated old signs, greeted visitors at events and created an information handbook for instructors.
Savannah is the daughter of Patrick and Valerie Blalock.
Griffin Hoey and Ingrid Santiago, both of Cary, researched sensory objects for students with autism and made manipulatives for each of the five senses to be used in classrooms at Salem Middle School. The items they created include bean bags, balloons filled with dry beans, flour and rice, and cans filled with heavy cement.
Griffin is the daughter of Chris and Krista Hoey. Ingrid is the daughter of Juan and Lisette Santiago.
