Welcome to my Scouting page. I will fill you
in on my Scouting accomplishments as a youth to start with.
1979 I became a Bobcat Scout
As a Webelos Scout, I earned my Arrow of Light and the Parvuli Dei Religious Award for Catholics. In 1983 I became a Boy Scout. Unfortunately I did not stay in the Boy Scouts long enough to earn the rank of Eagle. When I left the Boy Scout Program I was a First Class Scout. Now that I am older, I can honestly say that I regret not sticking it out to earn Eagle. Like many youth today, I did not know what the Eagle Rank could do for me. So from me to you, if you have a youth wanting to leave the Scouting program, PLEASE sit down and talk with him since he is more than likely blind to the total value of the Eagle Rank.
In 1995 a friend of mine got me back into the Scouting Program. I was hesitant at first but after the first meeting I attended, those old feelings from when I was a child came back. It was like finding your home away from home. Since then I have worn many hats and got certified in different things. As you will see by the list below I have been very active since rejoining the Boy Scouts. The ones in bold and italicized I am currently certified in or involved with to this date.
As an adult leader in the Boy Scouts I have had the opportunity to take training to help develop myself to become a better leader. As you can probably tell from the picture on the left, I am a Bear from Wood Badge, Course C-17-96. What kind of Bear you might ask? A "Mighty Mighty Bear" is what I will tell. Listed below is some training I have had the opportunity to attend and awards I have earned as an adult leader.
