It's a strong troop, they started an endowment 50 years ago so they're able to give scholarships to less-advantaged kids. They have dozens of adult volunteers (the most I can get to my meetings is three!) and a long history of highly decorated Scouts._
Feels good to give a scholarship to kids.
My wife and I are involved with a charity that has a scholarship and she is in charge of it.
We give a test and the top two kids get the scholarship. This year we had one kid who had lost his home in Hurricane Sandy, and like a lot of folks lived with a lot of nonsense over the last year. We were so hoping he would get one of the scholarships and how we would manage to eke one out if he did not.
We got the results yesterday, and we were so pleased he won.
