Girl Scouts make a difference in a unique way

An area Girl Scout Troop recently received one of Scouting's highest honors by helping out others in need.


The Scouts from Troop 71315 gathered supplies, built, and donated a set of therapy stairs to a local physical therapy office that treats a wide variety of injuries and conditions. The completion of the special service project allowed the Scouts to earn their Silver Award, the second highest award in Girl Scouts.


The Girl Scout troop consists of five girls, who are in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Four of the five received their Silver Awards as a result of this unique project. Troop leader is Stacey Joiner and co-leader is Brandi Brittan.


"Earning the award puts you among an exceptional group of girls who have used their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world," said a representative of the Girl Scout Troop.


The therapy stairs built by the scouts were donated to Countryside Physical Therapy in Branson where they will be used to help patients gain back their strength and mobility.
