Argyle Middle School 7th-grader Alivia Michaels has set out to make a huge impact on her local community. Alivia is a cheerleader and symphonic band member at AMS and is also a Cadette Girl Scout who has been a member of scouts for the past 8 years. 

Alivia is a 2027 ticktocker in the Texas Lantana National Charity League and a very big fan of Keep Argyle Beautiful. “Since she is so passionate about the environment and her town, she decided to meet with Kathy Salisbury, Chairperson of KAB, and present what she calls ‘Argyle Youth Clean-Up’ in partnership with Keep Argyle Beautiful.” Alivia’s mom, Joann said. “Kathy and Lisa have been nothing short of super supportive and encouraging. They continue to show their confidence in her.” 

If Alivia is successful in her Argyle Youth Clean-Up, she will earn her Girl Scout Silver Award, which she is earning as an individual scout. “Alivia and her troop 7598 earned a Bronze Award as Junior Girl Scouts by planning and supplying everything an underprivileged Daisy troop needed to earn their badges,” Joann said.

Alivia’s mission statement is: “To create a passion within youth organizations to maintain a trash free Argyle. Her vision statement is: “To create a culture in today’s youth that will be more mindful of littering for our future towns.”

This event is being held Sunday, November 7th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can sign up to volunteer for Argyle Youth Clean-Up at They have separated everything into two shifts; 11 a.m.–1 p.m. and 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
