Boy Scouts visit Tennessee Capitol

Posted

C.T. Gunter, a student at Waterville Community School, is a Bear Scout in troop 3477. He was selected to be the delegate for The Cherokee Area Council at the Boy Scouts of America annual report to the state. There are six councils in Tennessee, so each year just six scouts have this honor.

The group enjoyed a luncheon at the Boy Scouts headquarters in Nashville, where Sen. Craig Fitzhugh was the keynote speaker.

Next, they toured the Country Music Hall of Fame. After that, they traveled to the state Capitol for a tour, and met with Secretary of State Tre Hargett.

After that, it was time for the delegates to complete their service -— CT and the other delegates gave their reports first to the Senate, and then to the House.

Local House Rep. Kevin Brooks stepped out after their presentation to say hello and meet the other delegates.

C. T. reported The Cherokee Area Council had 6,292 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts, and Explorers. It had over 2,264 Scouts at resident camps, and 155 Packs, Troops, Crews, Posts, and Ships.

Lastly, C.T. was proud to report there were 56 Eagle Scouts in the Cherokee Council in 2017.
