Alan Davis – Boy Scout Leader Training Award
Wilburn Odom – Boy Scout Leader Training Award
Mike Anderton – Vulcan District Award of Merit
A word about Mike’s award. The Vulcan District Award of Merit is the highest award our District bestows. Our district is only allowed to give 3 of these awards per year. The award is presented to adults who not only display leadership and service within their units (troops, packs, crews) but also provide significant service to the District overall which serves over 50 units located in Homewood, Hoover, Mountain Brook and Vestavia. Mike has been very active not only with T96 but also with the Council (he is on the Board of Directors) but also with the District, specifically with regard to being the Chairman in charge of overall Youth Protection efforts and enforcement, but also as the leader of a monthly Eagle Board of Review panel. Past T96 winners of the Vulcan District Aware of Merit include Everett Holle, Paul Anderton (Mike’s dad), Roger Etherington, Loring Jones III, and Keith Sides. Congratulations Mike!! This is a well deserved honor.
Please join me in congratulating the men on these awards which recognize their service to the youth of our Troop and Vulcan District!
There was one additional adult award that Allen omitted from his list:
Allen Powell – Scoutmaster’s Key (for 3+ years of outstanding service as Scoutmaster for T-96)
The Troop was also recognized with a 100% Boy’s Life Unit award.
