Girl Scout Braxtyn Craig, of East Providence, Awarded Exclusive Scholarship to Mount Saint Charles Academy


Mount Saint Charles Academy (MSC) has partnered with Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England to offer an exclusive scholarship that will provide funding for one Girl Scout to attend MSC from grade 6 through grade 12. This Scholarship has been awarded to Braxtyn Craig, a 6th grade student coming from Myran J. Francis Elementary School in East Providence.

“Both Mount Saint Charles and Girl Scouts encourage young individuals to find their identity, while promoting education, friendship, and service to others. Both Mount Saint Charles and Girl Scouts believe that the ‘work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers’. Both Mount Saint Charles and Girl Scouts are renowned programs that promote leadership development, while serving others and creating a sense of community and family. Girl Scouts has taught me how to be confident and express my views, while respecting others’ opinions,” said Braxtyn Craig.

To obtain this scholarship Girl Scouts were required to be a Cadette level (grade 6) Girl Scout in good standing, with a strong academic background. To maintain this scholarship, the awardee must remain an active Girl Scout in Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England during their middle school and high school career at MSC.

“We are pleased to have been able to partner with Girl Scouts this year as we celebrate 50 years of educating young women at Mount,” said Jessie Butash, Vice President at MSC. “Braxtyn's fun loving and unique personality coupled with her experiences in service to others shone as qualities that will make her a wonderful addition to the Mount family and deserving of this scholarship.”

Both Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England and MSC maintain goals for their students to help build thoughtful, independent young learners. Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England strives to build girls and young women of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place, and these goals aligned with Mount Saint Charles Academy’s objective to educate students who use their gifts and talents to serve others.

“Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England and Mount Saint Charles share the mission of supporting youth in serving others, developing leaders, holistic education of the whole person, and teaching fairness and collaboration,” said Dana Borrelli-Murray, Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England’s CEO. “We’re excited that we were able to offer this amazing partnership to our Girl Scout community, and we look forward to seeing how Braxtyn continues to grow as both a Girl Scout and as a Mount Saint Charles student.”
