Boy ScoutsNorthwest Texas Council of Boy Scouts of America
…2019 marks a groundbreaking year for the Boy Scouts: Girls can now be included in all Boy Scout programs! The first all girl Scouts BSA Troop in our council is Troop 43, chartered by University United Methodist Church of Wichita Falls. Maja Spadin is the Scoutmaster for the troop. Her husband, Glen, and her son, Mark, were already involved in Scouting. When the family heard the news about girls, their daughter, Rachel, was excited to become a Scout like her older brother. Now Rachel looks forward to earning merit badges and being part of all the exciting adventures that Scouting offers.
Northwest Texas Council, Boy Scouts of America serves 1,100 young people who participate annually in programs focusing on character, education, leadership training, plus Scouting’s signature outdoor classroom – Camping. The skills young men and women develop in the great outdoors are some of the most important in their lives. Scouting transforms impressionable youth into caring, responsible adults.
