Girl Scouts Take On Home ImprovementMay 20, 2010
Taking home improvement into their own young hands, Mountain View Girl Scout Troops #1023, #369, #1082, and #45 learned the tools of the construction and remodeling trade this last Sunday at Harrell Remodeling, Inc.
Learning from the skilled staff of Harrell Remodeling, a woman-owned residential remodeling company, thirty-seven girls had the chance to earn their Ms. Fix-It badge by learning about the various aspects of the remodeling industry – from what it takes to be a woman in the construction industry to the many skills needed for running a remodeling company. Iris Harrell, owner of Harrell Remodeling, led the day as the girls worked hands-on in electrical, plumbing, carpentry, and tool and energy conservation workshops that taught them basic home-improvement as well as perseverance and pride in work. Additionally, in talking with the experts these industrious young women really got to understand the business aspect of remodeling and the many facets that belong to it. From changing electrical fuses to continuing education, these girls are ready to meet the challenge!This entry was posted in Community. Bookmark the permalink.
