Girl Scout Scholarship
Halle was a Girl Scout for 9 years in Troop 5 in the West Central Florida Chapter. She thrived in Girl Scouts. She developed independence, built her self-confidence, celebrated others through volunteerism, shared her passion for life with others, set an example for younger girls and most importantly formed life-long friendships. She especially loved the trips she and her troop took together. These included: Savannah GA - birthplace of the founder of Girl Scouts of America, Washington DC -the nation's capital and most recently, her troop planned a last minute trip to Universal as Halle's health declined. These girls wanted Halle to be with them on one last trip. Halle passed away just two months later. The Girl Scout Mission is to build girls' courage, confidence and character. Halle and her Troop 5 friends exuded these traits. I will be forever grateful to Girl Scout Troop 5 for the love and friendship they gave Halle over the years and I think those girls will never forgot the most strict Sergeant of Arms - Halle Grace.
