Congratulations to Scouts on Honor

Posted on Mar 28 2015 - 10:13pm

Two Troop 143 Scouts were recently inducted into the chapters of the National Honor Society at their respective high schools. The National Honor Society (NHS) recognizes and supports scholarship, leadership, and service, all of which mesh quite well with the aims of Scouting. Since its inception, Troop 143 has had at least one member of the NHS inducted each year in one of the local high school chapters.
