I had the pleasure of attending my first ever Silver Award ceremony this weekend. It was for an outstanding young lady who staffed my NYLT course last fall. She's become quite the role model and a mover and shaker in our Council's Venturing program. She comes from a scouting family and can out-scout most boys I know. I was surprised and honored that she called me forward to present me with a Venturing Mentor pin. I have three Eagle Scout Mentor pins, but not a Venturing pin. I typically try to keep my uniform low key, but I do wear each of my mentor pins along with my Eagle Scout father pin on the left pocket flap. Do I look like a general from a banana republic? Probably. But if a boy....or girl thinks enough of me to consider me a mentor and honors me with a pin, I'm not going to disrespect them by not wearing it.
No announcement yet.
