National Medal of Merit Awarded

The Medal of Merit may be awarded to a youth member or adult leader who has performed some outstanding act of service of a rare or exceptional character that reflects an uncommon degree of concern for the well-being of others.

The National Medal of Merit has been awarded to Tenderfoot Brandon. Brandon assisted a fellow student having a seizure during Health class. He sent someone to get the school nurse, cleared desks and chairs from the area, used his sweater as a cushion for the students head and helped keep the rest of the class calm. Brandon stayed with the student until they were placed in the ambulance. Brandon was assisted by the teacher.
