Boy Scouts have become one of America’s largest and most recognizable organizations with a focus on youth development. The title of ‘Boy Scouts’ has become synonymous with resourcefulness, independence, and helpfulness.
How did the Boy Scouts get to be revered with such recognition and praise?
Legend states that it all started one foggy night in London when W.D. Boyce, a newspaper man from America, found himself lost in the misty streets of the foreign town. Just as Mr. Boyce grew worrisome, he happened upon a young boy who was able to guide him back to his destination.
Boyce offered the boy some money, but the child declined the offer. He identified himself as a Boy Scout and explained that he was only doing his duty; therefore no payment was necessary.
Struck by this unexpected and random act of kindness, Boyce felt compelled to contact the head of the Boy Scout Association, a General Robert Baden-Powell. Boyce was not only a newspaper man, but something of an entrepreneur as well; when he returned to America, he founded the Boy Scouts of America.
This Saturday is National Boy Scout Day in which the country commends the Boy Scouts on their hard work and dedication to guiding today’s youth in order to make a better tomorrow.
