Girl Scouts earn prestigious silver award

A Youth Drug Awareness program earned four Carroll County Girl Scouts their silver award. Gabby Vaught, Nohemi Castellon, Megan Higgs and Maddi Carli are the first known Carroll County silver award recipients.

The Silver Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. A cadette is a girl in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade and a registered girl scout.

The silver award is a local community service project, beyond the Girl Scout community, that has a sustainable component to the project.
