Student Spotlight: Achievements–Leesa's Silver Award

My name is Leesa. I am 14 years old and live in rural New Jersey. I spent over 70 hours constructing this bridge/walkway to earn my Girl Scout Silver Award. The bridge is located in Chesterfield, New Jersey at Fernbrook Farms Environmental Education Center.

The inspiration for this project came from my desire to protect the environment and my passion for building things.

Along with my involvement in scouts, I also dance, crochet and love to play piano.

Art and Science Collide

My name is Sydney, and I live in the rural area of southeastern Ohio. In addition to my daily studies, I’m also involved in a local school of martial arts. I plan to finish high school this spring and join CollegePlus in the fall.

I’m the proud owner of two ponies and two dogs. My hobbies include my pets, sketching in my spare time, and reading books. Old books, sappy books, exciting books, historical books, mystery books; I love them all!
