Girl Scouts open bilingual program

The Tennessean reports that Hispanic girls have a new Girl Scout program called Las Hermanitas, in which bilingual and bicultural life is embraced.

"'It's just a way to accommodate them to the culture,' [Vanessa] Lazon said. 'They're getting used to being teens and getting used to being bicultural.'"

"Las Hermanitas is designed for girls in the fifth to eighth grades. To find out more about the program, call Teresa Nelson at 383-0490."
