Hey everybody!

leah.jpgI'm Leah, a Senior Scout from Satsuma. I've been a Girl Scout for 11 years, and recently earned my Gold Award. This is my first post, so I'm hoping some other girls will help me out, and post some interesting stuff!

So, has anyone ever heard of Satsuma? .. didn't think so.  Satsuma is a small town, north of Mobile. Satsuma High School has around 1,500 students. In Satsuma, football (mainly) and baseball are the sports of choice. A lot of the students don't put as much emphasis on academics as they should. Well, as much as I think they should. I'm a dork I guess you could say. I play soccer, which is another one of those little-emphasized sports, and most of my friends are basically dorks too. In a school that isn't focused on what I am, I'm sure I'm not the only one counting down the days until college.

For me, college is a chance to live somewhere that is totally focused on the same things I am. I'm hoping to get a scholarship to Auburn University and study pharmacy.

Surely there are other girls out there who feel the same way I do. I'd like to hear your story.


Hi Leah,
I hope you will make it to AU this fall. If you do, please look me up at the AU Alumni Affairs dept. I grew up in Auburn and was also in G.S. as a Senior Scout. A friend of mine, also from Auburn, and I will be starting a new cadette troop this fall. We both just moved back to Auburn but I'm sure we could use a lot of help!
Good luck at AU!

Hi Leah,

I hope that you make it to AU this fall!!
I am glad that a person your age is still doing girl scouts! I will be a Senior G.S. next year! I am just like you, in the fact that I am a dork, becuase I am 15 and still doing girl scouts!! I know that it does not sound dorkie, but to my friends it is!! I enjoy it so much!! I hope that more girls like us would see that G.S. is not dorkie!!! I have my sliver award and I am starting on my glod next year!! What did you do for your glod award?? Can you give me some ideas?? Thanks!! Good luck and best wishes!!

Julia M.
