    On an afternoon this past November, Katelyn was working with her father, mother and three siblings to clean up their garage. As the work was nearing an end, Katelyn’s father, Chris retreated to the attic to determine the cause of a leak in their roof. Katelyn had finished her work, excused herself, and went to play in the living room when she heard a loud noise coming from their three-season porch. She immediately went to the porch and discovered her father had fallen through the attic to the porch, approximately eight feet, landing on a concrete floor.

    Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast Girl Scout Ambassador Ananya Murali, 17, of Shorewood was recently named one of Wisconsin's top two youth volunteers of 2016 by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide program honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, now in its 21st year, is conducted by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

    Ananya, a senior at Shorewood High School and girl member of the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast board of directors, designed and conducted an educational leadership camp to teach middle school girls life skills and strategies to stand up against bullying and other forms of aggression in school.

She did some research and learned that bullying is a huge problem in schools, especially for children of color. “I was determined to take action,” she said.

    With $2,000 in grant money and the help of several dozen youth and adult volunteers, Ananya developed an anti-bullying/leadership curriculum and then organized a camp at a local middle school called “St...
