Columbus leaders, group honored for commitment to Scouting

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

There was a tribute Thursday night to leaders and organizations in the Columbus community for their commitment to Scouting.

The Chattahoochee Council of Boys Scouts held their 4th annual Whitney M. Young Junior Service Awards. 

Columbus OB-GYN Dr. Thomas Malone, a former Cub and Boy Scout, Hattie Wyatt, a Scoutreach leader for 15 years, and the Columbus Kiwanis Club were the honorees at the event held at the Cunningham Center.  All three award recipients were recognized for their support for Scouting programs and work in the community.

Organizers say the mission of the Boy Scouts hasn't changed over the years as the organization continues to prepare young people to make positive life choices.

"Scouting is basically preparing our young Americans in our community to take their rightful place not only in our community but in our nation. Our grateful nation needs leaders like them," said Pastor Roy G. Plummer, Vice President of Scoutreach. 

WTVM’s Barbara Gauthier served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the awards banquet.

Programs of the Chattahoochee Council are offered throughout the year and provide opportunities for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Explorers and their families to enjoy all that Scouting has to offer.
