EAGLE SCOUT 1981
started in Scouting as a Cub Scout in the late 1960's and eventually became a
member of the Eagle Class of 1981. During that time, I was in three different
Councils in Mississippi. First the Delta Area Council (now defunct - merged with
Chickasaw Area Council) from the 1960's to 1976. Then the Pine Burr Council from
1976 to 1979 (I believe). And finally the Choctaw Area
Council. I chose to
finish up my active career as a Boy Scout in Shubuta, Mississippi as a part of
the Choctaw Area Council so I could receive my Eagle at the exact same United
Methodist Church in Shubuta (on U.S. Highway 45) where my Dad received his almost 30 years previously.
Dad & Mom look SO Serious!
After graduating from college and getting married, I once again became active in Scouting as an assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 110 in Tallahassee, Florida (Suwannee River Area Council). I retained that position for several years until my job made it impossible for me to continue. Since then I started a new job at a local television station (WCTV), but unfortunately it also prevents me from being active in Scouting.
my time in active Scouting, one of my favorite activities was patch trading. It
was a popular activity at camporees, summer camps, regional jamborees, etc. Even
though I am not active in Scouting on a local level, I still enjoy collecting
My main interest is trying to update the CSP's and OA flaps from the Delta Area Council, the Pine Burr Area Council and the Choctaw Area Council. I am also interested in collecting various CSP's and OA flaps from the southeastern United States.
