Area girls have earned Silver Awards, the Girl Scouts’ second highest achievement. This is what they did for their projects:
Catherine Denisowski created an eighth-grade reading section in the library at Saint Raphael Catholic School in Raleigh. She added shelves, worked with the librarian to identify books and designed labels for books designated to the section. She’s the daughter of Paul and Vankhanh Denisowski of Raleigh.
Emilie Norwood renovated a courtyard at Leesville Road Middle School by adding mulch, plants and a big chess set. She is the daughter of John and Kristine Norwood of Raleigh.

She’s the daughter of James and Julie Pennington of Raleigh.
