DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN DINNER . . .
The Great Smoky Mountain Council Boy Scouts of America held their Distinguished Citizen Dinner in February at the Knoxville Convention Center. This year they honored Rick Barnes, the head coach of the Tennessee men’s basketball team. Barnes has more than 650 wins and led the Vols to the 2018 SEC title last season. This event is just one of many events meant to inspire our community’s youth. For more than 100 years, Scouting has provided adventure, learning, challenge, and character development while helping youth grow to their full potential by instilling the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
