Girls Scouts Take Over WMDT - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Girls Scouts Take Over WMDT

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - WMDT had some visitors at the station Saturday. Girl Scouts from Troops 38, 634, 710 and 740 came by as part of a media journey. As part of their visit, the girls actually helped write a story to run during a newscast.

The girls got a tour of the building and got to role-play in jobs like being an anchor. We talked to them about why they joined Girl Scouts and why they have stayed in for so many years. They say it's not just about camping, they learn a lot and have fun doing it.

Here is what a few of them had to say:

Jamiah Weston says, "I'm doing my silver award, that's gonna help me get into college."

Maddison Brown says, "It's really fun, you learn a lot of new skills and you go on a lot of exciting trips and you have more experiences than if you weren't in Girl Scouts."

Shannon Combs says, "I want to become a teacher and I think girl scouts will help me become a teacher."

Emily Harrington says, "The thing I like about girl scouts is that I get to hang out with some of my closest friends and even though most of its not about playing, we get to have some play time and just hang out and chill."

The girls told us they get to go on a lot of trips and the troops have helped them try new things. For more information on girl scouts and to find out you can join click here.
