Members of Girl Scout Troop 6717 in Conway were recently awarded the highest award for Girl Scout Cadettes — the Girl Scout Silver Award — for demonstrating leadership, commitment and community service.

Members of Troop 6717 are Chloe Cotabish, Katie Grigg, Taylor Hardester, Lylla Hinchcliff, Sarah Kemp, Sara Massa and Alleigh York. Troop leaders are Crystal Kemp and Regan Hinchliff.
