So something that people probably don’t know about me is that I volunteer with a local Boy Scout troop. I was a Scout growing up and I got my Eagle Award. I really valued the knowledge and skills that Scouting taught me and I want to give some of that back.
I think in today’s world that it is a good thing to teach young men outdoor skills and to teach them a love nature and the outdoors. That way they can grow up to responsible stewards of our natural resources. I also think that Scouting teaching values unlike any other organization. You can’t just send you kid to school and trust that they will learn how to be a good person. SCouting teaches honor, integrity, citizenship, the value of serving others, honesty and independence. THings that are lacking in our society. DOing all this in a setting of fun and outdoorsmanship is a great experience for young kids.
I am really passionate about SCouting and I am glad that I can be part of it. I hope that the knowledge I give to those kids is valuable to them and it can be something that will shape them as people and help them to lead better lives.
