Senior Girl Scout Troop of Hawthorne

“I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.”

This is the Girl Scout Law said by millions of girl scouts around the world. The Girl Scouts have been known to care about their surroundings, teach younger children to have an understanding about respect, and of course selling girl scout cookies to fund charities, win prizes, and earn badges. Julien Daisy Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts in 1912 with the hopes of spreading happiness, creativity, and to find the talents of every single girl. Girl Scouts of today have kept the spirit alive by playing out their mission. The Girl Scout mission is courage, confidence, character and to make the world a better place.Girl Scouts created a safe haven for those who need it and a helping hand to pick you up.

Our very own town of Hawthorne has Girl Scouts of many different ages with amazing troop leaders. In fact, there are senior Girl Scouts who currently are sophomores here at Hawthorne High School. Troop number 96921 had been established in September. Troop leaders Tania Sanford and Donna Berardi-Fanetti have rallied up girls to potentially have fun and keep going. Girl scout members of this troop are Francesca Fanetti, Jessica Sanford, Gabby Van Sickle, Skyler Russo-Wilson, Lauren Estes, Kayla Gurriel, and Leah Rosado.
