Cadette Girl Scouts Miklynn Gebhart and Ashley Jellison recently presented the Enterprise Bark Park Committee with a donation to purchase pet waste receptacles for the park. Gebhart and Jellison selected this project to earn the Silver Award, the second highest award in Girl Scouting. To complete the project, the scouts designed and built a prototype Pet Waste Station and then raised money to cover the costs of the waste stations. The stations will be installed at the park when th e fencing project is complete.
A national award with national standards, the Girl Scout Silver Award is a awarded by the Girl Scout Council of Southern Alabama on behalf of Girl Scouts of the USA. This award offers Girl Scouts the opportunity to do a project that reflects their leadership skills and improves their community.
