Kimberly Davis, a junior member of Girl Scout Troop 2164, has earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award and the Junior Girl Scout Leadership Award.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a junior Girl Scout can earn. It shows she has made a promise to help others, improve her community and world and become the best she can be.

Davis collected donations for the Taylor County Animal Shelter. This included old T-shirts, towels and blankets, newspapers, pet food and treats. These donations came from family, friends, church members and a donation box Davis set up at Taylor County Elementary School with the permission of former principal, Herbert Wheat. She also hosted a bake sale, raising $31.50, which she donated to the shelter.

The Junior Girl Scout Leadership Award offers girls an opportunity to develop their leadership skills as they provide service to their group and in the community.

Davis decided she would like to develop leadership skills such as responsibility, organization, good people skills and good brainstorming ability. She then did community service by reading to her great-grandmother, Gracie Wood, and volunteering to help at her church's nursery. She is a member of Stoner Creek United Methodist Church.

Davis is the daughter of Johnny and Julie Davis of Campbellsville. Her grandparents are Olen and Selena Bagby, Billy and Diane Price and the late Curtis Hudson and Jerry Davis. Great-grandmothers are Gracie Wood and Faye Blaydes.

Her troop leaders are Lateshia Johnson and Jamie Gilpin.
