Girl Scout World Thinking Day

Posted: Updated:

The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library helped sponsor a Girl Scout World Thinking Day Saturday in Staunton.

Girl Scouts from Augusta County went to Stuart Hall School to learn about sustainability. The girls planted tomato seeds and made posters to raise awareness about world hunger.

Wilson Library Education Director Ellen Abernathy stated, "We want the girls to understand that world hunger and world poverty is an issue that faces us locally, nationally and internationally."

Abernathy encouraged the girls to make a difference in the world. She says she believes the perfect place to start is at an early age as a member of the Girl Scouts.
