Girl Scout Earns All Brownie Patches Before Bridging To Junior

Virginia's Midlothian Exchange reports that nine-year-old Courtney Galligher is the first one in her troop 635 who has received all 57 of the Girl Scout Try-It badges. She also earned seven additional badges.There are four steps Girl Scouts have to complete to earn the Try-It badges. Courtney and her mother Cheley Galligher, who is the troop leader, have been involved with Girl Scouts for five years. From learning about computer safety to making puppets and dolls to writing her own song to selling over 500 boxes of cookies this year, Courtney Galligher has filled her brown vest with a number of achievements.

Galligher aspires to be an electronic engineer, and has even built her own robot.
