Girl Scout earns Silver Award

Lucy Schirmer of Andover has earned the Silver Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can achieve and the second highest award in Girl Scouting.

To attain the award, Lucy completed a community service project that involved conducting a book drive for children at Arlington Elementary School in Lawrence. After hearing that classes there were in dire need of books, she working closely with Dr. Colleen McBride, principal of South Elementary School in Andover, and the South School community to organize the drive.

The effort collected more than 600 books, which Lucy organized, catalogued and delivered to Arlington Elementary School.
