COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Leaders and businesses that have demonstrated and supported the principles of scouting were honored Thursday night.

The fifth annual Whitney M. Young Junior Service Awards were handed out at Green Island Country Club in Columbus. 

The event raised more than $10,000 to help underserved youth by supporting STEM Scouting Programs at schools across the region. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

The STEM Scouting Program is currently offered in 10 schools and represents 677 kids throughout Chambers and Russell County, Alabama
and Muscogee County, Georgia.

 Among those recognized were Rodney Mahone, President and Publisher of the Ledger Enquirer Newspaper; Ingeborg Wills, a Scoutreach coordinator who has worked with the boy scouts for over 50 years; and the Waffle House Corporation, a supporter of Scoutreach programs and more.  

News Leader 9’s Barbara Gauthier was the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event for the fifth consecutive year.
