Jane Goodall stated, “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Twelve-year-old Elizabeth Boyd decided to make a difference within the Spurwink community.
As part of earning her Girl Scout Bronze Award, she saw a need within the community that her brother was a part of at the Spurwink Cornville campus. Inspired by what the staff at Cornville has done and continues to do for her brother, she wanted to give back and show appreciation. She identified needs within the program and then created and executed a plan to collect these items for Cornville. She even utilized her own birthday money and allowance to purchase items.
In total Elizabeth secured and donated over 6 boxes of needed items for Cornville (which of course included some girl scout cookies for the hard-working staff)! Her efforts lead to her earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can achieve. We are grateful to Elizabeth, who is always thinking of ways to give back to Cornville and appreciates everything that they have done for her family. There is no doubt that Elizabeth will continue to make a difference in her community for many years to come.
Thank you Elizabeth, and congratulations on your Girls Scout Bronze Award!
