…To watch Chris teaching a group of Cub Scouts how to tie knots is an amazing thing to behold. You see Chris was born with diverse needs. Because of this he was homeschooled and needed an outlet for socialization other than church. When he first joined Scouts, he was shy and withdrawn until one day he discovered he and a leader shared a passion for comics. Quickly he started to become more comfortable and now Chris is a team player; he loves to go to meetings and on campouts. In 2019, he was one of a 20-member Scout contingency that attended the World Jamboree in West Virginia with over 40,000 youth attending. This year he is finishing up his Eagle Scout project which requires Chris to use all the leadership skills he has learned in Scouting.
