Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche: “Scouting shaped me as a young sea scout in Venezuela to be a Navy Officer and a global citizen. As the son of a widow, my Sea Scout group activities and camping and leaders were the roles models who guided me as a person and as a professional. I was part of a worldwide movement that is still impacting me. I became Scouter in Venezuela and later in the USA. The values I learned and the role models I followed were fundamental to do the same. Leading by example is my commitment to Scouting as a person, professional, and professor. Scouting is the best outdoors experiential educational method to form the leaders of tomorrow.”
