What They Are Saying About the Atlanta Area Council, BSA

Every day, Scouting makes a difference in the lives of Atlanta-area youth, their families, and our neighborhoods. See what people say about the impact Scouting has on their lives, and why they continue to support our local youth.

“Boy Scouts teaches leadership, dedication, the value of hard work, teamwork and community. It helps develop boys into men who become advocates for the environment, volunteers in the community and good citizens.”

C. Dave Moody, President and CEO, C.D. Moody Construction Company, Inc

“A strong Council means more Scouting in Atlanta. And the more Scouting we have, the better it is for our schools, families, and neighborhoods.”

Harry Evans, Scoutmaster Troop 370

“Scouting works harder than any other youth program that I’ve encountered to teach children lessons that are academic, athletic, artistic, and adventurous. Children who participate in scouting are visibly more prepared for life opportunities, both positive and negative, because of his or her Scouting experiences.”

Jenny Chapin, Partner, Savell & Williams, LLP, Scout Mom Troop 525

“The Oath, the Law and the outdoors all provide lessons for the Scout to understand that they matter, that they can make a positive, long-term impact in their family and the greater community.”

Degas Wright, CFA, Chief Investment Officer, Decatur Capital Management, Inc.

“The short term return is our children's happiness. The long term gain is leadership for America. I never lost a dime on my investment in Scouting.”

Dr. Randy Rizor, The Physician's Spine and Rehabilitation Specialist of Gerogia

“Scouting continues to deliver the strong foundational values that make leaders in our communities and in our world.”

Vinny Ferguson, Scoutmaster Troop 107

“Both my sons are Eagle Scouts. As an active father, I was able to observe first-hand the impact Scouting had on them—not just their camping skills, knot-tying, and cooking — but the more important character building traits.”

D. Richard Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-CEO, Primerica, Inc.
