Scouting – Allows Boys To Be ‘The Best Them’ They Can Be …. And Success Follows!.
Jerry Beaver says it all started when he volunteered to be a Popcorn Colonel! Jerry’s son was a Cub Scout and the pack needed someone to head up the popcorn sales and that eventually led to Jerry chairing the Black Rock District. Jerry tells Brian Beddow, Field Director for the Hawk Mountain Council, that scouting changed his life, built relationships and expanded his circle of friends.
Jerry says he was shy but as a volunteer he developed public speaking skills and built confidence and respect … “the 12 tenets of scouting are good rules to live by and when you know what Scouting can do for you, you want to give it to others”. The Scouting experience gives as much to the parents and volunteers as it does to the young men and young women who join.
