Two local Girl Scouts have earned top honors.
Alixandra Pitney of Cary recently earned her Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest achievement that a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. For her project, Alixandra put together resources for the Readers Theater at Carpenter Elementary School. She created lesson plans and collected supplies to help prepare the program to assist students in their reading skills. She collected donations, including general office supplies, storage containers, reusable stamps, craft materials and cleaning supplies, and spent a full week in the classroom teaching her lessons to students.
Alixandra is the daughter of Mike and Kathy Pitney and a member of Troop #712.
Hannah Brown of Wake Forest recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award, which is the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, for creating the “Cyber Senior Café” at The Lodge at Wake Forest, an independent senior living facility. She collected donated iPads and created a borrowing and check-out system for the residents so they would have continued access to technology. She then taught them to use the iPads, helping them learn how to play games, navigate the internet, and use social media and email to keep in touch with family members.
Hannah is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Columbus L. Brown II and is a senior at Franklin Academy. She is a member of Troop #1658.
