This is the report made by First Coast News NBC Channel 12 about the 100 years of Scouting. Scoutmaster Says Scouts Saved His Life.
February 8th, 2010 marked the 100 years of the Boy Scouts of America. First Coast News NBC Channel 12 made a report on FSCJ Kent Campus to celebrate the date. News reporter Roger Weeder covered many points during the interview. However, TV News time is very limited and it only focused on one area. I am very thankful for the opportunity to share the story and for the lesson about the importance of being prepared to save a life.
We covered other areas such as the connection between Scouting skills and method with Management topics that we cover in our courses. We also covered the importance of teaching youth leadership skills at an early age and how we are using the same concepts we teach in the BSA National Youth Leadership Training in college courses and life lessons. Finally, I explained the BSA core values to emphasize during Scouting Centennial year: Leadership, Achievement, Character, Service, and Outdoors. In our Supervision and Management courses we also emphasize the same values.
Thanks again for the opportunity to celebrate 100 years of Leadership training.
