FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Local Scout To Deliver 2015 Report to the Nation to President Obama

Cincinnati, OH {March} – 8-year-old Wolf Cub Scout, Sean Nichols from Edgewood, Ky., of Pack 3775, was selected to travel to our nation’s capital to present the 2015 Report to the Nation. The report recaps another great year of Scouting: 2.3 million youth participants served, 15.3 million hours of service logged, 54,366 new Eagle Scouts.

Within 2 years of joining the Scouts, Sean earned 25 academic belt loops, 8 academic pins, 13 sports belt loops, 2 sports pins, and 16 other awards. He qualified for his NOVA Science award, the Outdoor Ethics Action award, Cyber Chip award, ScoutStrong award, the Light of Christ religious award, and just recently earned the Dr. Luis Alvarez Cub Scout Supernova Award.

Sean participates in several after school clubs at Villa Madonna Academy, including: Chess Club, Science Club, Jr. First LEGO League, and Destination Imagination. He also participates in CTRH’s adaptive horseback riding program and is one of the youngest members of the Cincinnati Dragons Youth Wheelchair Basketball Team. His goal when he completes school is to be a zoologist, because he loves to learn about animals.

Sean led a school-wide effort to raise funds to help other kids with transverse myelitis, a rare neuro-immune disorder that caused him a spinal cord injury as a baby. He is a very spirited and determined Scout, following in the footsteps of his Eagle Scout father. His determination to succeed carries him through each day, allowing him to do what all youth at his age want to do—be active and have fun.

Each year a delegation of 6 to 10 Scouts is selected to travel to Washington, D.C., to deliver the report to our nation’s leaders. The delegation represents all areas of Scouting and every region of the country. This report covers who the BSA is as an organization, the programs and initiatives it supports, and its major accomplishments and contributions over the past year. The BSA has defined its path forward under four pillars—service, leadership, learning, and adventure—as it prepares young people to be Prepared. For Life.™
