Carmel Girl Scouts Junior Troop 1086 Learns About Government
County Executive Helps Girl Scouts Earn “Inside Government” Junior Badge
CARMEL, NY – On October 25, 2016, County Executive Odell visited Carmel Girl Scouts Junior Troop 1086 to talk with the girls about working in government. The scouts, ranging in age from seven to ten, were working towards their “Inside Government” Junior Badge and wanted to learn about the types of problems a County Executive addresses.
The County Executive spent an hour talking and answering questions about her day-to-day responsibilities; how laws are made and why, and the importance of leadership roles among girls and women. They also discussed 16 year-old Sybil Ludington and her bravery as she rode through the dark of night to alert militia forces to the approach of British troops.
After the presentation, the girls presented Odell with her own “Inside Government” badge and named her an honorary member of the Carmel Junior Troop 1086.
