Junior Scouts earn Bronze Award

SAVANNAH WORKMAN AND Josie Whelan from Troop 943 have earned their Bronze Award in Girl Scouting.
Two girls from Troop 943 have earned their Bronze Award in Girl Scouting, the highest honor that a Junior Girl Scout can achieve.

Savannah Workman and Josie Whelan are first-year juniors and have worked hard to achieve their goal, Girl Scout officials said.

The Bronze Award is earned by first working through three steps, one of which includes earning two badges in the area that they will be doing their service project. Both girls chose an animal-related project, so they earned the pet care badge and horse rider badge. The service project was the fourth and final step to the award.

They also had to fulfil 15 hours of service hours, donating their time to reach the final goal. Whelan chose to foster a kitten from the animal shelter. This involved a daily commitment of feeding, cleaning up after and general care of the kitten.

Workman took care of a horse that was recovering from EPM, a disease that is transmitted by possums. She would come and administer the medicine, clean out the stall, and groom the colt daily.

Workman is the nine-year-old daughter of Dr. Mark and Michele Workman of Fort Gay, W. Va. Whelan is the nine-year-old daughter of Jerry and Amy Whelan of Louisa.
