BALLANTYNE | wire SWEET CHARITIES YOUNGER SET Scouts Win Silver Awards Ardrey Kell High students Archana Jayasekar and Rajani Guditi from Troop 3744 earned Girl Scout Silver Awards this spring. Their award project involved forming a math- tutoring club for seventh graders at Community House Middle School, where they could share their longtime passion for math education. Their project also spurred interest from Ardrey Kell High's National Junior Honors Society and Beta Club, whose members earn volunteer hours for working with the math-tutoring club. Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Ann Clark spoke at the awards ceremony.
