Girl Scouts Heart of the
South Troop #20349 from Starkville, MS held their regular troop meeting on Monday, October 17, 2011
at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. As part of the troop’s “Leader for the
Day” initiative, troop members Kashayla M. and Charnequa C. chose to take
a different approach on the concept of service.
The young ladies brought in a speaker, Annie Jones- a breast cancer
survivor, to talk with the troop and parents about the importance of early
detection, self- breast exams and also her experience with the disease. The girls were given Breast Cancer pocket
calendars and other incentives to promote Breast Cancer Awareness.
