On Feb. 29, Mayor Mike Stanfield met with Girl Scout Troop 20127 and Ms. Von Wilson and Mishonda Monday from Troop 20208 to present them with the proclamation that declared 2012 “The Year of the Girl.”
In 2010, Troop 20127 met Mayor Stanfield and Officer Glennis Monday at Sgt. Park for a different reason. The girls cleaned up the park, which is now used every day by many of LaFollette’s citizens.
Mishonda Monday is a Gold Award recipient for 2012, which is the highest award that a Girl Scout can receive.
Abby Green, Ally Greene, Kassie Scarborough, Katelyn Scarborough and Rachel Stiner are all Silver Award recipients for 2012, which is the second highest award that a Girl Scout can receive.
