Real friends introduce their other friends to Girl Scouts! Meet Morgan H., a third year cadette in Troop 6289 in Maumelle. Morgan joined Girl Scouts as a Brownie after being introduced to the organization by her close friend, Natalie. Since then, Morgan has taken part in all that Girl Scouts has to offer — badge earning, camp and outdoor activities, product sales and volunteering to name a few.
“My Girl Scout experience has been amazing,” Morgan says. “Right now, I’m working on earning the Science of Happiness, Cadette Girl Scout Way and Babysitter badge.”
Additionally, Morgan is working toward earning a Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn, and she is planning to go on a Girl Scout Destinations trip this year.
Aside from seeking out all the great opportunities offered through Girl Scouts, Morgan enjoys giving back to the council by volunteering her time.
This summer, Morgan volunteered her time to the council assisting with large projects like annual conference activities, and most recently, sorting renewal patches for the membership, volunteer and program department, working toward yet another reward, a Cadette Service to Girl Scouting Bar.
“Being a Girl Scout has helped me to become more independent, more self-reliant,” Morgan says. “Girl Scouts builds powerful young women, and I am happy to be a product of the Girl Scout program.”
When she is not busy participating in all that Girl Scouts has to offer, Morgan enjoys playing soccer and basketball. Morgan also likes to craft, paint, sing and hang out with friends.
