Jessica Merritt - Pembroke High School
Jessica Merritt from Pembroke High School.
Jessica is a recent Gold Award recepient in Girl Scouts. She organzed a Water Safety Awareness Day for the town of Pembroke that allowed citizens of the town to come be trained in CPR for babies and children, Water saftey for pools, beaches and boats, sign up with the town for swimming lessons for their children, and get the town beach sign repaired. She enlisted lifeguards like herself, the Police and Fire Departmentto train the adults and young adults, and had other students and scout to entertain the children with facepainting and games to free up their parents. SHe was so successful a sponsor came forth that day to cover the costs of repeating the program again this year. She is a great student and family member, active in her scout troop, school and in her community. She really is a class act.
