A fascinating video artifact found at author Win Davis’s website
In April of 1987, Bill Hillcourt came to Central Florida. He visited for an evening with Scouts and leaders from Boy Scout Troop 46 in Longwood. What he had to say is pretty interesting. The Boy Scouts of America was still recovering from decisions made in the 1970s to modernize the program. The program changes didn’t work and all through the 1980s, Bill worked tirelessly to reinvigorate Scouting.
You get a real sense of Bill’s passionate effort to keep the focus of Scouting on the individual Scout. His understanding of the nature of Scouting and the nature of young people is something we can all strive to share.
Win Davis is the author of the book Men of Schiff – read my review here.
