The Buffalo Trail Council held its Annual Banquet this past Saturday, Feb. 23rd, in Midland. This banquet is held to recognize youth and adults for significant accomplishments during the year. The Council recognized all of the Eagle Scouts from the Buffalo Trail Council for 2018. Several adults were also recognized with the Silver Beaver Award, which is the highest honor an adult can be awarded by the Boy Scouts.
However, the highlight was the presentation of three Meritorious Action Awards to three Scouts from Andrews, Texas. These awards are Nationally recognized awards for youth or adults who show a significant or outstanding act of service, or of an exceptional character, was performed. Justus Tucker, Timothy Tucker and Anthony Pina relied on the skills they have learned in the Boy Scouts to save the life of a fellow student, recently. While at school, one of their classmates had a major seizure that required immediate action. These boys are all Boy Scouts with Troop 129 in Andrews.
Because of their selfless and courageous behavior, Anthony Pina, Justus Tucker and Timothy Tucker were presented the Meritorious Action Award by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
