Grace Lutheran member, Jim Bucher was presented with the Wood Badge Award by the Boy Scouts of America at a special ceremony on Monday January 6 of this year. Jim is an Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 35 at St. John’s UCC in Red Lion.
The Wood Badge is a comprehensive leadership program for adult leaders in the Boy Scouts of America. Wood Badge courses aim to make Scouts better leaders by teaching advanced leadership skills, and by creating a bond and commitment to the scout movement.
A Wood Badge course, which extends over a period of many months, consists of classroom work, a series of self-study modules, outdoor training, and a Wood Badge “project.” Wood Badge is the Boy Scout’s premier adult education program. It is truly an honor and a distinction to be awarded the Wood Badge insignia. Congratulations Jim!
