Six members of a local Brownie Girl Scout unit have received PRAY awards for completing the Scouts’ God and Church program.

Those receving the award are Sara Fairbanks, the daughter of Jill and Randy Fairbanks; Kayla Folsom, the daughter of Tish and Keith Folsom; Alyx Fravel, the daughter of Karen and Paul Fravel; Cayleigh LaGrua, the daughter of Catherine and Daniel LaGrua; and Tara and Alisa Ratliff, the daughters of Carol and Paul Ratliff.
