HARKER HEIGHTS, TX — Troops across the country are celebrating Girl Scout Week. Each day, scouts work to achieve goals to make the world a better place.

On Monday, scouts came together at Harker Heights Public Library to discuss their community service projects. The day’s mission was to celebrate sisterhood, which can be honored through coming together to help others.

The girls worked to crowdsource resources needed to host an event to inspire fellow students with science-based activities, and reading initiatives at the Library.

“I feel like it’s good to give back because it shows how much we appreciate our community. And how we are so glad to be apart of the community,” said Alyssa Ruiz, 11-years-old.

This is all apart of their efforts to achieve the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can attain.

“I think it’s really cool to be in girl scouts because it’s just like a family and you are all just one big group, and you know each other really well,” said Gracie Mikan.

Tuesday marks the 107th birthday of the Girl Scouts. About 3.2 million girls and leaders participate in the organization.
