It is hard to believe that an organization founded over 111 years ago, could be in existence today, yet the Girl Scouts of the USA continue their mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, making the world a better place. This mission is embodied through the overcoming spirit of Arian Corry, from Fallon’s Troop #102, as she will be the only Girl Scout CCHS student graduating this year.

Completing all 12 years in her Girl Scout journey, Corry successfully achieved her bronze star when she created adoption bags for the CAPS organization; then her Silver Star, for creating hygiene bags for local junior high school students and is currently completing her Gold Star by creating walking markers for hiker’s using the Grimes Point Archaeological walkways, east of Fallon. Within the Sierra Nevada Girl Scout region, accomplishing all three stars is a highly coveted goal, one which Corry assuredly will reach very soon.

Proudly wearing multiple sashes to accommodate all of her earned badges already fulfilled, plus her fun patches, Corry stated that her reason for remaining involved has been to help others, learn new things, and support the sisterhood, which provided her the best friends anyone could ever ask for.

“I enjoy the mentorship of our group, especially because we are the welcoming troop for our military families. Since I am a true Fallonite, I love our close-knit community and all we have to offer others. I proudly represent Fallon and the volunteerism you see happen whenever or wherever it’s needed.”

When Corry was asked why volunteering mattered so much to her as a Girl Scout, she mentioned being featured on a PBS interview as a nominated outstanding citizen. As she said in that interview, “It pulls people together. Whether it’s working with the River Wranglers on a project at the Lahonton Water Shed through a school project, helping a homeless teenager, or showing up for a Girl Scout project, it all matters in the long run. It really is how every community should work.”

Her mother, Elizabeth Corry, being a troop leader, shared that she was also a Girl Scout for ten years. She expressed the proud fact that her daughter, Arian was a fourth-generation Girl Scout, and her sister, Jasmine is also following in their footsteps.

Over 50 million girls in America have experienced being a Girl Scout in their childhood, the Girl Scout Handbook stated in 1913, “The work of today is the history of tomorrow and we are its makers.”

Upon Miss Corry’s sash, there are arched badges signifying each completed phase of her Girl Scouting achievements. These levels represented Daisies grades K-1, Brownies grades 2-3, Juniors grades 4-5, Cadettes grades 6-8, Seniors grades 9-10, and Ambassadors grades 11-12. Every badge has differing background colors to coordinate with the levels at which they were earned. Her two personal favorite badges, which she sewed on herself, were for First Aid and Robotics.

The Girl Scouts was founded by Juliette Gordon Low on March 12, 1912, when strict social norms restricted many freedoms for women, yet The Girl Scouts of the USA was officially chartered by our U.S. Congress on March 16, 1950. Today this legacy of friendships, fun, field trips, skill building, environmental experiences, and cultural exchanges continue to touch beyond America, as they are a global organization known as Girl Guides in other countries.
