Order of the Arrow

The Order of the Arrow is the national honor society of scouting. Last Friday night, Steve and two of his good friends took part in an initiation ceremony centered around the attributes of self discipline, hard work, and service. They spent a night under the stars and then worked the following day, full day, with little to eat and without being able to speak to one another. The day was hard, but this experience proves that Steve can do hard things, indeed that is the purpose of scouting, to help young men see that they have the capacity to lead out and act different than the norm. Steve passed the test and is now an official member of the Order of the Arrow.
