Girl Scout Donates to Cousin's Scholarship Fund


Girl Scout Donates to Cousin's Scholarship Fund.

When it comes to giving back to the community, one local Girl Scout has gone above and beyond. Hannah Wright of Blossvale donated the money she raised through the sale of Girl Scout Cookies this past winter to two local causes she feels strongly about.


The first is the Daron Malik Jae Simpson Memorial Scholarship Fund at Mohawk Valley Community College, which is in honor of her young cousin who was murdered in November 2004. The second was the Madore-Grant Trust, which is to aid a Westmoreland family whose home was recently destroyed by fire.


In an effort to keep Daron's spirit alive, Hannah Wright presented MVCC President Randall VanWagoner with a check for $100 to go toward this scholarship that is designated for deserving single mothers in Oneida County, to assist them in building better lives for themselves and their children through education.


Also present during this presentation was Natalie Brown, CEO/Executive Director of the Foothills Girl Scout Council. Hannah Wright is a 12-year-old member of the Foothills Girls Scouts who attends the Camden School District.


"The importance of this message is that she (Hannah Wright) is giving back to the community in order to help mothers who are in a tough situation," said Brown.


This eighth grade girl sold 460 boxes of Girls Scout Cookies.
