Some Rock Island middle school girls have joined a sorority--a so-called “BLING “SORORITY designed to learn the value of community service and being good role models.
Each week a couple of dozen 6th through 8th girls at Edison Junior High in Rock Island meet in a “Lights ON” afterschool program being run by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois and the Rock Island County Regional Office of Education. The high school girl led program consists of activities and discussions about friendships, stereotypes and bullying. The students will also learn about giving back to the community by exploring service opportunities such as helping in a soup kitchen and visiting nursing homes.
