Arroyo Grande

Arroyo Grande High School senior Kayla Bueno, of Girl Scout Troop 40305, recently earned her Gold Award for updating her church, Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church, where she is a member of the youth group.

With the help of her Girl Scout troop, Associated Student Body class and other friends, Kayla painted the church, planted drought-resistant succulents in the garden, installed a new basketball hoop as well as a net for the volleyball court, and created a scripture wall, which has some of the youths’ favorite scripture displayed.

“This project really helped me decide to major in business administration. It gave me a new set of skills that I am excited to use in college and in the business world,” Kayla said.
