Girl Scouts honored for cookie sales


On Saturday, June 20, Girl Scouts across the Carolinas Peak to Piedmont came together to celebrate Girl Scout Day at Emerald Pointe in Greensboro.

Not only was it a day for all girls to have a fun day at the park, but a Cookie Award celebration as well.

Peak to Piedmont awards highest cookie sales with GEO pins. These pins are given to the girls that sell 500+ boxes of cookies.

Several girls from Stokes County attended and received their recognitions and a free ticket into the water park.

Peaks to Piedmont also gives out College Scholarships to the girls who sell 500+ boxes. The girls names are randomly drawn from each level represented in Girl Scouts.

This year Stokes County Cadet Scout, Savannah Kendrick, from Troop 2342 of King, was chosen. She won a $1,000 scholarship.

Stokes County Girl Scouts sold more than 27000 boxes of cookies for the 2015 Cookie Season. Troops use their cookie money to support the desires of the girls, whether it traveling, projects or community service events.

“The Cookie Program provides opportunity and opens doors for all girls. It is great way to learn about budgeting, financing and commitment. I am so proud of what each girl accomplished this year.” Samantha Fortune, Service Unit Specialist and Troop Leader of 41080 commented.
