Media Wrap-up: Oct. 13-19

Each week Girl Scouts all over our Council are recognized by local media for their service projects, awards or even just for doing a good deed. Check out our favorites from the past week below!

Ultimate Fort Bend announced Girl Scout Mira S. earned her Silver Award. She performed different Indian classical Bharatanatyam dances at Atria Senior Living to earn the award. Congrats Mira!

Ultimate Spring reported Girl Scout Rachel P. earned the Lifesaving Medal of Honor for coming to her mother's rescue after a Jet-Ski accident. Rachel is one of just 13 girls in the entire country to receive the award this year. Congrats Rachel!

Not quite an article about Girl Scouts, but we sure got a kick out of this feature on Texans defensive end J.J. Watt in the Houston Chronicle and the mention of his soft spot for Girl Scout cookies. (Mention is at the end of the section titled "Wisconsin all the way".) What we want to know, J.J., is which one is your favorite?

We love reading so many good stories. Have you seen a great article in your local paper? Share it by emailing the link to menzor@sjgs.org.
