After representing the Boy Scouts of America this week in Washington, D.C., the Report to the Nation delegates will leave with some amazing stories.
But as I talked with each delegate today, one fact became clear: They arrived with some amazing stories, too.
There’s the Eagle Scout from New Jersey who didn’t let his own visual impairment slow him down as he completed an Eagle project to benefit students who are blind. And the STEM Scout from Colorado who, at age 12, developed a revolutionary device to test for lead in water. And the Explorer from Nevada who stepped into the line of fire to save at least two dozen people after the concert shooting last October.
I interviewed 11 of the 12 delegates yesterday. (The 12th delegate is National Order of the Arrow Chief Anthony Peluso. He joins the delegation today after completing a site visit for the 2018 National Order of the Arrow Conference.)
The interview aired live on Scouting magazine’s Facebook page, but you can see a complete replay below.
Prepare to be amazed.
