Tampa teen awarded Girl Scouts' highest honor for service

- A Tampa teen has achieved the highest honor for a Girl Scout.

Bradley French proudly volunteers at Mitchell Elementary School. She helps kids learn about archeology, which is her passion.

"I feel like there is a lot of hidden passion inside of them," Bradley said. The class is helping the 17-year-old earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.

"It's the highest a Girl Scout can get," Bradley explained.

She joined the troop with friends while in kindergarten. 

"We always had fun adventures together," said Bradley. "I love camping out with them and doing all the service that we do."

She is now an ambassador for the organization.

"I'm naturally shy around people so learning leadership skills through the Girl Scouts is great," Bradley added. "The girl scouts has been a constant part of my life and I have very much enjoyed my time with it."

She hopes to study archeology in college next year.
