Alexis Burda recently earned her Silver Award in Girl Scouts. It is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette (grade 6-8) can earn.
Alexis’ project was 50 hours of helping children who needed assistance from the Orphan Grain Train.
With the help of her troop and the West Point Junior Girl Scouts, they decorated ink pens with duct tape and made hair bows. She also sewed several pillow cases.
She was able to give the Orphan Grain Train 39 pens, 75 hair bows and 17 pillow cases.
Her goal is to earn her Gold Award which is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. She will have to complete 80 hours on a project and would like to continue working with the Orphan Grain Train.
She would like to collect school supplies and toys and give them to Orphan Grain Train.
Anyone who would like to donate items should contact Alexis at 402-380-2683 or 402-372-2840 and she and her family will pick up items.
Her Scout leaders have been Erica Colson, Julie Paschold and Debby Miserez.
She is the daughter of Kelly and Tony Elder and Todd Burda.
