Girl Scouts win Bronze Award

Eight local Girl Scouts of Junior Troop 31010 have been awarded the Bronze Award, the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can earn, after completing a week-long community project.

With the guidance of troop leader Jane Baran, the Girl Scouts assisted a special needs classroom at Encinal Elementary School in Menlo Park as the students learned about the life cycle of butterflies, said Larissa Collins of Menlo Park, mother of one of the girls who attained the Bronze Award. The girls are all fifth-graders at Encinal Elementary School.

The Bronze Award winners are: Anna Baran, Cammy Britts, Emma Collins, Rebecca Klein, Kate Perri, Katherine Steere, Kaitlyn Tonsfeldt and Elana Goff.

They were recognized at an award ceremony that took place at an Atherton home on Friday, May 20.
