Scout leaders are recognized

WARREN – Girl Scout Troop 80324 held a recognition banquet for Agnes Bryant and Julia Redd, both of whom have served more than 50 years of service to scouting.

The two women are beacons in the community for what they have done for local Girl Scouts, organizers of the banquet at the YWCA of Warren said.

Bryant has been a leader with the Lake to River Girl Scouts since 1956. She had membership on the Silver and Gold committee, the Wider-Op Committee, Lake to River Girl Scout Council Service United 625, and received the Leadership Pin. Brown also trained future leaders for the Lake to River Girl Scout Council. She is a recipient of the Community Volunteer Service Award and the IB Taylor Award for Community Service.

Brown visited the Scouting World Headquarters in London and Girl Scout founder Juliette Lowe’s birthplace in Savannah, Ga. She retired 14 years ago from scouting.

Redd, who has 54 years service, started Girl Scout Troop 74 at Eastside Church of Christ. Two of three scouts in the troop received God and Community awards.

Redd became a leader of the troop, and also worked with Brownies, and Junior and Senior Cadettes, and helped the scouts earn many badges for service and achievements.

Redd has received the Leadership Development Pin, Citation of Service, Official Recognition and Daisy Pin for Overall Community Service, and Appreciation Award from Lake to River Girl Scout Council District 6.

Redd and Bryant have been friends for more than 78 years.
