A few Severna Park High School students hosted Recycle Day with local Girl Scouts.
Two Severna Park High students taught local Girl Scouts about recycling as part of their final senior project for the SPHS Leadership Institute. The Leadership Institute is an innovative program that prepares students for academic and professional careers through successful decision-making. For their project, Severna Park seniors Samantha Slattery and Erin Falvey visited a local Girl Scout troop to host a Recycle Day.

With the help of juniors, Emma Slattery, Carolyn Kotkiewicz, and Katy Bellotte, the seniors organized stations that taught the Girl Scouts about the 3 R’s, reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Brownies took to the streets on Halloween in search of treats for themselves and food donations for Serving People Across Neighborhoods (SPAN) in Severna Park. A win-win situation for all, the girls really got into the spirit of giving while at the same time getting. Toting the bags brimming with canned goods was hard work, accomplished with pride and many smiles. "It was exciting to see young people embrace the fellowship of caring and giving at a young age," said troop leader Trudy Pastine. All 20 girls, first through third grade, spread the word beforehand in their individual neighborhoods and came up with the plan to work toward a community service badge while having some fun.
