Former BSA President Rex Tillerson: ‘The Mission Has Not Changed’
Excerpted from Scouting magazine’s “Bryan on Scouting” blog)
So we’ve made the decision. We’re going to change,” says Rex Tillerson. ”Now what?”
Less than 24 hours after the volunteer delegates voted to change the BSA’s membership policy for youth, Tillerson addressed a large room full of Scouting volunteers and professionals at the closing general session of the BSA’s National Annual Meeting.
In a powerful, heartfelt speech, Tillerson made his message clear: Change is inevitable, but “The Main Thing,” which is to serve more youth in Scouting, hasn’t changed. With that in mind, he reasoned, it’s time for all of us to unite toward this common goal.
