   How many times have you heard “Our youth are our future?”  I believe this is an absolutely true statement, which is partly why I have been a Scouting volunteer working with youth almost my entire adult life (even before I had children, and long after my children had grown up and left home).  I'm sure this was a factor in my selection for Scouting's highest national award, the Silver Buffalo, the Silver Buffalo in 2024.

   There are many factors that affect youth development–much more than providing just good schooling and a good home life–which should not be taken for granted. In addition to being our future, our youth are our “right now.”  As your Delegate, you can rest assured that our youth will always be one of my highest priorities.
