Court of Honor

March ’20 COH

We had a great turn out at our Troop Court of Honor, which was good because the scouts have been working really hard on new Merit Badges and Rank Advancement over the last few months. Even though it has only bee three months since our last Court of Honor in December, scouts completed and were awarded 15 Rank Advancements and 13 Merit Badges! Great job guys, that’s a huge achievement. There were also a few other items awarded. Daphne Huey received her “Good Egg” awarded by the Troop & Rudi Shumpert received his “Good Egg” awarded by the District. Troop 2319 as a whole also was awarded Gold Journey to Excellence 2019, Foothills District Honor Roll Chicken Pin”, and our Scoutmaster Col. Tom Welch was presented the OA Unit of Excellence  Certificate as Troop 2319 was one of only three units in the entire Atlanta Area Council to receive the OA Unit of Excellence in 2019! Congratulations to everyone and keep up the great work!
