Tops in sales

A Goldsboro Girl Scout is the top cookie salesman for the Council of Coastal Carolina this year.

Tiffany Burden, 15, a student at Goldsboro High School, is a member of Goldsboro Troop 1. She has sold more than 2,100 boxes of cookies to raise money for the organization. She is the daughter of Terry and Vernita Burden and is involved in the Goldsboro High band and several sports teams.

The goal of the council, which covers 25 counties, is to sell 85,000 cases of cookies during its annual campaign. About 7,000 cases have been ordered for Wayne County.

People who have not been contacted by a Scout about buying cookies may call Deborah Brady at the Girl Scout office at 734-6231 extension 116.
