Hello I am Abby Musser! I am an Ambassador in Girl Scout from Troop 70256 and have been a proud Girl Scout for 10 years. Through Scouts I have been given many opportunities to build leadership skills, earn badges by learning new information about the world , learning new technical skills, earning my Bronze Award and Silver Award. I learned about teamwork and exploring the outdoors while camping with my fellow scouts. Outside of scouts I enjoy volunteering with my church. I am very active with my church mission team, VBS, and the free lunch program, Lunch with Luke. Inside of school, I take pride in my academics and am a part of Warwick High School’s club “Unite”, that supports The Four Diamonds fund for kids with pediatric cancer.
The highest award a Girl Scout can earn is her Gold Award. I am fortunate enough to have an opportunity where I can earn this high honored award and make a difference in my community. I have decided that for my project I plan to install two adaptive swings in a local park, Lititz Springs Park. My inspiration behind this project comes from a little boy named Tanner who was born with a rare genetic disease. Tanner requires extra support while swinging in a regular bucket seat. By installing these swings, my goal is to spread awareness for the importance of inclusive play for the special needs community.
