John Carroll junior Alex Kane, member of Girl Scout Troop 1382, was awarded the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting. To receive this honor, a girl must use her organizational, leadership, project management and teamwork skills to serve her community. Alex created "Bark for a Cure." She solicited pictures, in the form of a contest, and created a canine calendar. The proceeds from the sale of this calendar went to benefit cancer research and treatment. Alex will be formally recognized by the Girl Scout organization this spring.
