National Capital Area Council, Boy Scouts of America welcomed nearly 50 recipients of the James E. West Fellowship Award on June 1, 2019, for their 2018 contribution at the annual re-dedication of The Alice S. Marriott Patio and The Robert and Dee Leggett Endowment Garden. The audience listened intently as Scouts exhibited their public speaking abilities earned through public speaking merit badges with finesse some adults would be envious of!
The keynote speaker was Eagle Scout, Lieutenant General L. Scott Rice, Lieutenant General Rice is a long time Scouter having served in his sons’ troop together with his wife Nancy. He spoke of the importance of Scouting and the continuity Scouting allowed his family as they traveled throughout his military career.
