First grade Warren Walker School student, Briella Barry, has been awarded the Girl Scout Medal of Honor.

Briella Barry is the youngest recipient of the Girl Scout Medal of Honor.

On the morning of June 27th, Barry and other children were playing near the water in San Ignacio, Baja California. One of the boys (age 3) wandered into the water, reaching for a stick, and fell in. As his brother was trying to hand the boy sticks to grab onto, Barry immediately and quickly ran to get help. She was calm and precise about the trouble and the father was able to pull his son out with only seconds to spare. Her immediate and calm action in notifying an adult of the child’s near drowning directly resulted in a saved life. In honor of this act Barry was awarded the Girls Scouts of America Medal of Honor at a special presentation on January 24th. She was recognized at the school by her troop leader, Caroline Fisk. Barry is the youngest recipient of this national award.

Warren-Walker School has more than 81 years of experience in providing an enriching, inviting, and caring environment for learning and growing. Today, Warren-Walker has two Lower school campuses, located in Point Loma and La Mesa, and a third campus for Middle School in Mission Valley.
