Sixteen Rockdale County girl scouts were honored recently at the annual Bridging and Awards Ceremony of the Diamond Girl Scout Troop 14866.

The event was held at Cross Point Christian Church in Conyers and Rockdale Clerk of Courts Ruth A. Wilson was the guest speaker.

Wilson encouraged the troop, comprised of girls in the 1st through 9th grades, along with their parents and leaders to continue the Girl Scout movement.

“It is heartening to see these young ladies being nurtured with values like service, courage, fairness and responsibility. This is where leadership begins,” said Wilson, who also assisted the girls with the removal of their current scout vest/sash prior to walking over “the bridge” where their leader awaited them with their new level vest/sash.

Greater Atlanta Council of Girl Scouts of America’s Service Unit Support Specialist Tenequa Alexander was also in attendance to present the girls with High Honor Awards such as the Diamond Troop Award recognizing the group’s efforts.

Rockdale’s Service Unit Director Sandra Alexander praised the troop for continuing the Scouts’ mission.

“Here in Rockdale, we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place,” said Alexander, who has served as an adult Girl Scout Volunteer for 13 years. “We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.”
