Scouts Earn Junior Leadership and Prestigious Bronze Awards


Over the past two years, the girls in Troop 436 worked to complete their Junior Leadership Award and earn the prestigious Girl Scout Bronze Award.  The leadership award was earned in part by providing community service to local intermediate schools (Birchwood, Maplewood and Washington) by planning and organizing different ways students could change their behavior in order to save energy. To fulfill the community service project portion of the Bronze Award, the girls chose a project to benefit West Hills County Park and Volunteers for Wildlife. They organized a clean-up of Jayne’s Hill, a part of West Hills County Park.  As the girls have camped in the park for years, it was now their turn to become good stewards of the land.  In addition to the clean-up, the girls also collected and donated essential items to Volunteers for Wildlife, a local non-profit group that rehabilitates local native wildlife in need.  The girls enjoyed all of the work and should be very proud of their accomplishments.

The Leaders of this troop are Julie Nace, Carol Clopper and Chuck Nace. Girl Scouts are Meghan Brady-Fuchsman, Sarah Clopper, Diana Fogel, Sofia Lorente, Sarah Nace, Aidan Noble, Lauren Redelman, Mycaela Reilly, Lily Stein and Mikaela Zukaitis.
