Congratulations Michaela with LHC girls Troop 700 for receiving the Medal of Merit Award

Congratulations to Michaela F. with Longhorn Council girls Troop 700 for receiving the BSA Medal of Merit Award!

Our brave Scout rendered aid to a downed motorcyclist.  The accident victim unfortunately did not live but we recognize the aid and attention provided by Michaela.  Thanks to our Longhorn Council Scouts BSA hero, the downed motorcyclist was not alone during that tragic time.

Bryant Butler, Longhorn Council Field Director, shared this with us, “Michaela’s parents are proud of her bravery and what she is learning with Scouts BSA.”

This young lady and many Scouts and Scouters in the Longhorn Council are doing their best everyday and for that we are grateful.
