That’s me and my daughter Abbey at the marina at BSA’s Florida Sea Base. All of my children have participated in the scouting program. I was an Assistant Scoutmaster with Troop 100 for 7 years while my sons (one is an Eagle and the other will be a Life Scout for life) grew up in the scouting program. My oldest daughter served as president of her Venturing Crew. My youngest daughter, whom you see pictured with me, is currently a Star Scout in Troop 100G.
Scouting is important to me. It has given our family wonderful opportunities to learn leadership skills, outdoor skills, and travel across the southeast on hiking, kayaking, and sailing adventures. I am so excited that Scouts BSA will include girls and allow them the opportunity to earn the prestigious Eagle Award. I love leading a girl troop and look forward to seeing the impact that girls will have on this program.
I hope you’ll join us!
