To the editor:

I am a Boy Scout in Troop 505 in Mocksville, and am writing to express my strong support for the Boy Scouts of America and to encourage others to get involved in this incredible organization.

The Boy Scouts have provided opportunity for American youth for over a century, providing young people with the opportunity to grow, learn, and lead in a supportive and challenging environment. From camping and hiking to citizenship and leadership training, the Boy Scouts offer a wide range of activities that help you from your daily life to important life saving situations.

Boy Scouts can also help you with school, or jobs involving life skills and public service, and I strongly encourage others to at least try Boy Scouts.

Whether as a parent, volunteer, or fellow scout, there are countless ways to help support this organization.

Caden Mott,     Mocksville
