      Three Brea Girl Scouts were honored at a recent Brea City Council meeting for having been awarded the Gold Award, the highest award in girl scouts. Jill Patterson is the unit manager.

        Brianna Clark organized a group of dancers and singers that perform around Orange County at various retirement homes. She choreographed routines, made costumes, synced music, and taught the dances and routines to her team. There are 3 Dance teams now...in Orange, Anaheim and Brea!

          Briana Stempniak organized Camp Fit. Briana developed a fun, comprehensive education and fitness program that was piloted by the Boys and Girls Club of Brea, Placentia and Yorba Linda. On the first day of camp, over 40 kids signed up. The Boys and Girls Club plan to implement this program at other Boys and Girls Clubs throughout California.

            Makayla Warren made a series of videos and scripts to assist autistic children make and keep friends. She then trained a group of high school students who volunteered at St. Jude for two summers. The team put on the skits and then interacted with the autistic children in the group. Her project helped both groups of kids...the autistic children learned some tips on making friends, and the high school kids learned how to work with and interact with children with special needs. Makayla has received rave reviews and now is thinking about becoming a specialist with autistic children as a career!
