Dignitaries Join In To Recognize 2012 Eagle Scouts
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) In 2012, the Snake River Council boasted 150 Eagle Scouts and Saturday night 21 were recognized for this distinct honor.
Idaho dignitaries took the time to commend the scouts for their efforts Saturday evening at the Eagle Recognition Dinner.
They include State Controller Brandon Woolf, Idaho State Representative Steve Miller and State Senator Jim Patrick.
Woolf is an Eagle Scout himself and Patrick is the only Eagle Scout currently serving who has been elected to the Idaho House and Senate.
We caught up with both Woolf and Garrett Greener, an Eagle Scout from Filer's Varsity Team 172. For those who live in Filer, Greener's project might sound familiar.
Greener says, "it was part of Operation Facelift. I revitalized an old building in downtown Filer. I just used most of the funds out of pocket, but I also had fundraisers to help pay for it."
Woolf adds, "the Boy Scout program is an incredible program for the young men, to support them and show our recognition for the work they have done for their leaders, having been in the scouting program, what it means for my family and others is just to reciprocate that and keep it going."
Now the rest of the Scouts who couldn't make it Saturday night had other commitments including military service and missions.
