MIAMI –-(Ammoland.com)- Bob Morrison, the President and CEO of Taurus International Mfg., Inc., has been announced as the new President of the South Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
The South Florida Council encompasses Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward counties of Florida and serves approximately 40,000 youth.
“I feel honored to accept this position and will continue the traditions of this outstanding council,” said Bob Morrison.
“Regarded for its diverse population; the South Florida Council has recognized its responsibilities and led the way to establish a true multi-national organization that leads the youth of our community in developing, recognizing and achieving the possibilities that the Boy Scouts of America offer.”
The Boy Scouts of America was officially incorporated on February 8, 1910 and remains a vital organization with a mission and purpose that is even more relevant today than ever before. For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America has created a strong foundation of leadership, service, and community for millions of America's youth.
Serving nearly 4.1 million youth between the ages of 7 and 20, with more than 300 councils throughout the United States and its territories, the Boy Scouts of America is the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training. Program participants earn recognition for making a difference in their communities due to their dedication to five of Scouting's core values: leadership, character, community service, achievement, and the outdoors.
Having served more than 100 million members since its founding, the Boy Scouts of America has made a lasting and positive imprint on the fabric of the nation. Its mission: “Preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law,” enables Scouting to address many issues that are important to young people and families, including health, civility, education, leadership, diversity, and service to others.
“This country needs strong leaders and healthy young people more than ever before, and that is what Scouting is all about,” said Bob Mazzuca, Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America.
“This is our time in history to remind the nation that Scouting is more vibrant, more vital, and more relevant than ever before. Every day, millions of Scouts and adult leaders make a huge difference in our society. We look forward to continuing that commitment in the next century.”
