RICHMOND, Va. -- Six local Scouts are celebrating after recently earning one of the highest awards a Junior Girl Scout can achieve.

The girls are part of Troop 35 from Ebenezer Baptist Church in Richmond. They are the only scouts in the troop's 80 year history to earn the Bronze Award.

The six scouts put in more than 150 hours over a seven month period to complete a virtual tour video that will spotlight the historic Jackson Ward area.

That ten minute video will be showcased on the website of the Historic Jackson Ward Association.

The scouts researched several places in Jackson Ward, interviewed community members and worked as a team to write and produce the script.

They also completed the voiceover work for the video.

The scouts names are Kayden, McKenzie, Aliciya, Mycah, Kameelah and Wramsey.

Troop 35, led by Glennys Fleming and Viola Baskerville, is part of the Girl Scouts Commonwealth of Virginia Council.
