Almost everyone in the packed boardroom wanted to be a teacher when Girl Scout Junior Troop 16185 presented 139 boxes of cookies as part of the hometown heroes program. 

According to leader Katy Burns, the girls sold more than 3,700 boxes this cookie season. People wishing to buy, but not eat, the treats were able to donate their boxes to the hometown heroes program, resulting in 139 donated boxes.

Troop members selected teachers as their hometown heroes, and — at a meeting of the Moffat County School Board of Education on Thursday, March 28 — they presented the cookies in decorative bundles, one for each school in the district.
