Today I attended one of the best Boy Scout honoree luncheons.They are all terrific, yet this one resonated with me in many ways and as a board member of the Greater NY Councils, it is always wonderful to learn from those that are honored.
Today the FDR Distinguished Service Award was presented to Robert Glenn Hubbard, Dean of Columbia Business School. His remarks were brilliant,witty and inspiring.
As an Eagle Scout himself, it was especially enjoyable to listen to the young Scout who spoke today of his own experiences and it was Dr. Hubbard's own son, 13 year old Will Hubbard.
The inspiration behind today's award service was Franklin Delano Roosevelt-an inspired leader who had vision, drive and a love for youth, and FDR served as the first President of the Greater New York Councils of the Boy Scouts from 1918-1922.
In his honor, the Boy Scouts present the Distinguished Service Award to a deserved individual who exemplifies the qualities and unique spirit of the first Council President.
Truly a wonderful and inpiring meeting today.
