Girl Scout Brings Awareness To Neighbors
Sidney Reeser, a senior at Wichita High School South. She focused her Gold Award project on increasing awareness of crime while creating unity among her neighbors with a neighborhood watch. “My neighborhood project benefits everyone! By bringing awareness to safety issues in our neighborhood, we can motivate others city wide,” said Sidney Reeser, Ambassador Girl Scout. “Citizens become more aware of their surrounding and look out for one another.” Sidney designed and executed her plan with nearly 70 hours of work as she collaborated with the Community Police Department while establishing guideline for her neighborhood watch system. She surveyed her neighbors, organized two immediate meetings, and established a directory of all neighbors so that all members can be contacted in an effective manner. “It is easy to accomplish a task after setting a goal,” says Sidney about her Gold Award Project which resulted in three neighborhood watch programs.
