Hernando Senior Girl Scout Troop 10450 celebrated our 100th by traveling to Washington D.C. to "Rock the Mall".
Girl Scout Senior (grades 9-10)
Seniors are already confident leaders, caring members of the community, responsible for themselves and respectful of the common good. Through the National Program Portfolio and Girl Scout Leadership Experience, they pursue group and personal goals, and use the Girl Scout Cookie Sale as an entrepreneurship experience.
Are you ready to embrace new adventures? Are you ready to say yes to new challenges? Then, step up to Girl Scout Seniors where you'll find opportunities to do all that and more!
