Avid Insider readers will remember our recent article about Girls Inc., a fun afterschool group for local girls ("Girls Inc. brings out the smart, strong and bold in local little ladies," Nov. 11). Well, each month, the girls and staff choose a "Girl of the Month" who exemplifies their motto: "Strong. Smart. Bold." This month, that girl is Kara Laramee.
