LOWELL, Mass. (WHDH) – A 15-year-old Girl Scout from Lowell took on a new role on Tuesday when she was given a chance to become Girl Scout’s executive director for a day.
April Decastro received the honor after selling more than 5,000 boxes of cookies, making them a hit. She had quite a busy day of meetings and activities, accompanying the organization’s permanent CEO as well as other senior executives throughout the day.
The teenager has been climbing the ranks in the Boy Scout organization for some time, but it was only recently that she accomplished this impressive feat.
“Every day after I got home from school, from about 3:30pm to 6pm, maybe a little later depending on when it got dark, I would walk down my street and pitch my own with my mom little table and my sister and my stepdad,” April said.
Her sales totaled over $26,000.
“You know, at Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, it’s hard work, but it’s also fun. And I think she experienced a bit of that today,” said Erin Sullivan, director of Girl Scouts for the Eastern Massachusetts Product Program. “It’s a lot more than just cookies, you know, it’s a lot about being a part of the community. When we interact, everyone is involved!”
