Way to go, Anastasia

Anastasia Broadus received the Gold Award from the Girl Scouts of the Nation's Capital on May 16 at Trinity Washington University in Washington, D.C.

The award is the highest one that you can receive through Girl Scouts. She received the award for her work at Memorial Recreation Center in Hagerstown.

She collaborated with Children In Need with the help of Ann Martin, who assisted her with the project.

Anastasia wanted to be sure children who could not afford to buy school supplies would have them on their first day of school.

She has been in Girl Scouts for 11 years at Memorial Recreation Center with Jane Barvir, who has been instrumental in keeping the Girl Scout Troop alive as troop leader. Anastasia started Girl Scouts in the fall of 1999 when she was in the second grade. She has held several positions along the way.

Anastasia is a member of TRASH (Teens Rejecting Abusive Smoking Habits), which meets at the Rec Center every other Tuesday. She has been a member for five years, serving one year as a state representative, three years as president and one year as vice president.


She is getting ready for a dance recital at The Maryland Theatre Saturday with the dance group from Ballet and All That Jazz. She dances with the group and helps teach the dance class at Parkside Community Center. The group is sponsored by the C-SAFE program.

Anastasia will graduate from the Washington County Technical High School on June 1 and from North Hagerstown High School on June 4.

Monique Broadus, Anastasia's mom, is very proud of her daughter.
