GRAPEVINE -- Peyton Nairon said it was the "buddy system" that helped her save her father's life. When her father was in danger of drowning last summer at a California beach, Peyton, 12, initiated a rescue.


Her quick actions earned her a Girl Scout Medal of Honor, the second-highest award bestowed by the New York-based Girl Scouts of the USA.


Members of Peyton's troop and other supporters gathered this month at St. Laurence Episcopal Church in Southlake for a recognition ceremony. Peyton received a medal to pin on her green Scouting vest. "I'm really proud that I was able to receive it and to know that I helped." said Peyton, a sixth-grader at Durham Intermediate School in Southlake. "It was kind of like a freak accident. I'm just glad that he is O.K."
