Boys scout leaders seek support

March 6, 2003

Albany -- Southwest Georgia Boy Scout leaders want to make sure the community continues to support scouting.

There are 3000 boy scouts in the Southwest Georgia Boy Scouts Council. Major General B.M. Lott from the Albany Marine Base, an Eagle Scout himself, spoke Thursday morning at the Scouts annual Character Counts Breakfast.

General Lott said "Scouting is the basis for the development of character. That is what we are talking about this morning. It takes kids who come up looking for where they should go in life, and helps develop their skills they will need to develop their character."

 Southwest Georgia turns out almost double the number of Eagle Scout Award winners as the national average in Boys Scouts.
