THS student earns Girl Scouting award
A 15-year-old Tonganoxie High School student has earned the Girl Scout Silver Award, which is Girl Scouting's second-highest achievement.
Lucinda Frevele, a THS sophomore, recently was awarded the honor.
"I've been working on it for awhile," she said.
Lucinda, who's been active in Scouting for eight years, said she plans to go for the gold next.
"I have until my senior year, and it will probably take me about three years," she said.
To earn the silver award, Lucinda had to fulfill many tasks, including working with Brownie troops and taking on other leadership roles.
The best thing about Scouting, in Lucinda's view, is the trips she and other girls take.
"We go on trips everywhere," she said. "Last year, we went to Yellowstone National Park, and that was pretty cool."
Lucinda is the daughter of Earl Joseph Frevele Jr., Tonganoxie, and the granddaughter of Mary and Earl Frevele, also of Tonganoxie.
Other silver award winners from the area are Elizabeth Studnicka, Lansing; Kelsi Bean, Linwood; and Gina Mroszczak, Donna Scalvini, Chelsea Smith, Yael Ortiz, Alyson Hessenflow and Hillary Green, all of Leavenworth.
Gold award winners this year from the area are Hillari Bean, Linwood; Christine Whittamore, Lansing; and Krystal Naiser, Jennifer Farwell, Sonya Ditsch, Heather Green, Rebecca Butler and Jessica Tuttle, all of Leavenworth.
The girls were honored at a ceremony on March 4. Girl Scout Week was March 11 through March 17.
