BSA Big Give Luncheon

Terry Fossum

Keynote Speaker

Born in the poorest city in the United States surrounded by gangs and drugs, Terry found himself staring down the wrong end of an assault rifle in his own back alley in Junior High. In high school, his father was killed. Before he died, one of the neighbors told him “I just want to make sure you understand something: “Not a single one of your boys will ever grow up to be anything.” But Terry and his brothers had Scouting, and Scouting changed their life.

Who We Are

It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America, Mid-America Council to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout oath and law.
