A Lehighton Girl Scout is well on her way to earning the Silver Award.
Cassandra Rehnert, 14, chose to refurbish the playground at the Lehighton Grove. She painted benches and power washed the playground equipment to give the playground a fresh, clean look that should last years before it needs another touch-up.
Rehnert said her advisers, Tom Evans, Lehighton recreation director; Kathy Hosler, leader of Cadette Troop 3801 and Senior Troop 3802, helped her come up with the project.
The Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn.
