When most Girl Scouts are leaving and disbanding troops to focus on college acceptance activities, Troop 363/564 of Holmdel is still going strong. One of the only remaining Ambassador Troops in Holmdel, this seven-member troop of high school juniors is not only continuing with scouting but excelling in their education pursuits as well. On Jan. 23, all seven members of the troop were admitted into the prestigious National Honor Society at Holmdel High School.ย 

According to the National Honor Society, on average, only 10 percent of any graduating class achieves admission into the society. In order to be considered, a student needs to have a GPA of at least 3.66. They must also have 50 community service hours. In addition, a student must prepare four written statements pertaining to the four pillars of the society: scholarship, leadership, service and character. They must also submit letters of recommendation from teachers, mentors or employers. ย 

The seven juniors that make up Troop 363/564 are Nicole DiBlasi, Ellie Guillfoyle, Rebecca Hancock, Stevie Hanhan, Isabella Marotta, Eva Merhi and Samantha Salerno. ย
