Scouts Share Community Service Projects with North Carolina Governor

Five young men from the Tuscarora Council, Boy Scouts of America recently appeared before North Carolina Governor Bev Purdue to share their ideas about community service projects. The Scouts will be spearheading these projects in their home counties.

Their presentation, which is part of the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America, was held Monday, Feb. 8 at the State Capitol. Scouts from each of North Carolina’s counties presented their ideas as well.

Local representatives were:

Jonathan Holt of Johnston County
Holt was the council’s spokesperson. He is currently a student at Appalachian State University. Holt is an Eagle Scout from Troop 262. He is also the lodge chief of the local Order of the Arrow (a Scouting camping honor society). 
 
 
Adam Bryant of Sampson County
Adam Bryant from Troop 41 will be heading up a project with other Scout groups in Sampson County to provide emergency supply kits for churches, schools and senior citizen centers. This project is estimated to provide 600 service hours.

Ryan Kronz of Johnston County
Ryan Kronz from Troop 24 will be heading up a project with other Scout groups in Johnston County to plant approximately 4,300 trees. This project is estimated to provide 720 service hours.
       

Joshua Lamb of Duplin County

Joshua Lamb from Troop 47 will be heading up a project with other Scout groups in Duplin County to provide a food drive and health fair for migrant workers and other under-privileged individuals. This project is estimated to provide 1,000 service hours.
