Local Scout earns top award

David Read works hard for Chief Scout Award

David Read of Agassiz received the Chief Scout Award on June 4 at a ceremony held in Surrey.

Read is a member of First Fairfield Scout Troop, and the Chief Scout Award is the highest award that a Scout can earn.

Only about two to five per cent of Scouts manage to receive this award as it involves a lot of community service work, learning leadership skills along with good outdoor skills. This year, from the whole of Fraser Council, 88 young people received the award. Read will be taking the next step in his journey by moving up to Venturers in the fall. David’s goal in Venturers is to earn his Queen’s Venturer Award, the top award again. David has also included in his journey the Duke of Edinburgh Award, a challenge open to all youth 14-25 years of age.
