Funny things happen due to Wood Badge.

Because I went to Wood Badge, I had a diversity ticket,

Because I had a diversity ticket, my troop guide pointed me to the Urban Emphasis Scout Leaders Council to work it,

Because I went to the UESLC, I started getting involved in what they do,

Because I got involved, I received the Whitney M. Young Award tonight.

Not sure how I did it, but it’s definitely due to Wood Badge.
