Students at Blake Manor Elementary School are like those at any other elementary school. They love to learn, to play, to be with their friends. Their parents are hopeful for their future and want the best for them. However, students at Blake Manor Elementary experience more barriers than many kids.

The wonders of marine life are what drove Troop 27283’s passion for their Bronze Award. With their sights set on one day becoming marine biologists, penguinologists, animal rights lawyers, and more, they were ready to see how they could make a difference. The first step was learning more about the world their favorite animals lived in. Thanks to the widespread accessibility to video conferencing tools, the troop was able to contact experts in the marine biology field.  “It was really cool to meet someone who can answer my questions.

I’ve learned a thing or two in Girl Scouts, including how to Discover, Connect, and Take Action to utilize Girl Scout resources to my advantage!

This year, we celebrate Girl Scouts of Central Texas’s centennial—100 years since the first troop formed in the Central Texas area. A lot has changed over the last one hundred years.

Last month, we were lucky to catch up with Girl Scout alum June Rodgers who shared a bit about her own Girl Scout experience and the legacy of Girl Scouts in her ..read more
