Six Triangle Girl Scouts attained the Silver Award, the second highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

This is what they did for their projects:

▪ Lorraine Glenn of Cary organized an ongoing food drive program for the Dorcas Ministries Food Pantry. Her program “Food Drive Friday” included a monthly food drive at her school, Resurrection Lutheran School, and an instruction manual to teach others how to start their own food drive programs.

Lorraine is the daughter of Bob and Julie Glenn.

▪ Juhi Modi and Salauni Shah of Raleigh created decorative stepping stones for the Hospice Home of Wake County.

Families of patients chose tiles or shells that represented their loved one and the girls designed a custom stepping stone using those items.

Juhi and Salauni are members of Troop 3294. Juhi is the daughter of Aashish and Purvi Modi. Salauni is the daughter of Mira and Pritesh Shah.

▪ Kayla Norman of Wake Forest organized a program entitled “I Live My Faith,” at St. Catherine of Siena School.

Kayla and her group met every other week to discuss their faith and engage in activities such as making their own rosary.

Kayla is the daughter of Jim and Lisa Norman and a member of Girl Scout Troop 616.

▪ Megan Saunders of Youngsville created a preschool library at the St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School in Wake Forest. Megan organized a book drive, decorated and stocked two bookshelves, decorated a wall and prepared lesson plans and activities to accompany several of the books.

Megan is the daughter of Jon and Amanda Saunders and is a member of Girl Scout Troop 616.

▪ Nisa Soltani of Raleigh partnered with The Nest Children’s Home in Kenya to provide guidebooks for potential adoptive parents visiting the facility.

Nisa researched, created and published a guidebook to be placed in the cottages with information about Nairobi, including transportation, shopping and restaurants.

Nisa is the daughter of Saeed and Tamara Soltani and a member of Girl Scout Troop 3609.
