Many Troops choose not to utilize a Troop Court of Honor for the purpose of
recognizing adult leaders for their contributions. The Court of Honor is
reserved to honor and recognize the acheivements of the boys. Our Troop
will somtimes recognize adult leader aceivements after we close a Troop
Court of Honor, making certain that we make a clear distinction between
youth recognition and appreciation of adult committment.
