I was part of a board of review last night where we promoted a scout. I found out today that he misrepresented himself. It was not an outright lie, but still. The question was asked of him, "tell an example where you have shown leadership and helped the new first year scouts". He responed with an example of how just last week at camp he sat down and showed them some knots. I complimented him on his initiative as this was very uncharacteristic of this scout (he borders on being a bully at times to the younger boys). I found out today that doing the knot tying presentation was a form of punishment of his bad behavour at camp. I wish I had known this before we promoted him, before I complimented him. This is an ongoing trend that I am seeing with this scout. Any comments, suggestions would be more than helpful. FYI - this was a promotion to 1st Class rank.
