County schools and area Girl Scouts have a common goal: girl power.
They’re tired of girls shrinking in their seats when asked for answers in class. They want to stop girls from feeling fat, ugly and unable to achieve. They want to give them the tools to live healthier and happier lives.
They are using similar methods of achieving that goal.
About 10 county elementary and middle schools have a program called Girl Power that pulls aside girls to discuss topics such as body issues, standing up to bullies and having self esteem.
