WELLINGTON, Fla. — Kitty Lane is proud to wear her Boy Scouts of America troop patch and it has a symbolic meaning.
"Because you're not excluding anybody," she said.
With her mom by her side Kitty is now a member of the Boy Scouts of America Wellington troop 4125.
"I don't think there was ever a moments hesitation that she would not do it," Jennifer Lane said.
Lane says she's always kept her daughter busy with activities like dance and Kitty participated in the cub scouts with her brother, but eventually her brother went on to join Boy Scouts and Kitty had to join another program.
"When he joined Boy Scouts it was kind of out for me," Kitty said.
Now Kitty and her friends will be able to learn the same skills as the Boy Scouts, like first aid and other survival skills.
"I'm hoping I can reach eagle the highest rank," she said.
