Five local Girl Scouts earn ‘Silver’ honors
Five girls from Laguna Beach Girl Scout Troop 575 have earned a Silver Award, the highest award a Cadette Girl Scout can earn. This award requires the completion of a service project of no less than 40 hours, as well as several other requirements including leadership and career exploration.
The “silver” awardees are: Katy Fleming, Emily Rubino, Katie Nemsik, Berklee Donavan and Daniella Crivello.
Together, they completed more than 238 hours of community service. The recipients of their work are the Mary Fay Pendleton School at Camp Pendleton, Laguna Beach Community Clinic, the Environmental Nature Center in Newport Beach and American Family Housing in Midway City.
In addition to receiving certificates from the Girl Scouts, they each received letters from the Secretary of State and the governor of California, acknowledging their service, sacrifice, leadership and citizenship.
