Thanks for your reply. I have had Ches Martin and Mark
Wilson also reply. The more information the better. I will
be including my snail address at the end of this posting.
We here in the Coastal Carolina Council felt it important to
inform the new Eagle Scout of his potential resources. The
NESA scholarship program is a valuable resource for these
boys. There are a lot of bright young men who want to go
on to collage, but their family finances don't allow it.
If we can get the NESA information into their hands, maybe
we can send at least some of these bright individuals off
to a chance to expand their knowledge, and be a leader
in our work industry.
Thanks to Ches and Mark for helping out in this area, I will
be sending them copies of the completed Eagle packet, real
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and by the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The ticket is complete. I am completing my write-ups on the ticket
items currently, but it looks like the November roundtable will
be a Woodbadge presentation roundtable.
So what am I going to do with all my free time, now that the ticket
is complete? laugh, laugh!
Seems like these ticket items that I have started will be on going
projects that I will continue to work on for sometime to come.
The results of the Woodbadge program:
I became a merit badge counselor. Well I enjoy counseling
the boys on their badges, so I guess this will continue.
Eagle counselor. I am an Eagle Scout, class of 64'. I have
always wanted be involved with the Eagle program. Keeping the
Eagle packet current for the Council will be interesting.
Troop - Pack liaison person. While my son is still in the
Scout program I will keep involved with the troop in some
fashion or another. Our Troop meets at a Methodist Church,
as well as the pack. For many years they didn't know each
other existed. Now they go on activities together.
So what does the Woodbadge program do for an adult? It helps the adult
focus on the task he enjoys, gives him the skills to succeed at those task,
and gives him opportunity to practice them, before the adult becomes
major involved in those tasks.
An one debating the Woodbadge program, My suggestion is DO IT! If
you want to be involved in the Scout program, and contribute to the
cause of making young boys young men, with leadership skills, the
Woodbadge program should not be missed.
