A First Class Scout   A First Class Scout Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
As I look around the group, I can see that some of you are wearing a First Class rank patch. That marks you as having earned the rank. But, I was wondering about what makes a scout a First Class scout - what marks someone as having really reached that level of maturity?

I came up with three things:

1. How you regard yourself. A First Class scout has a high code of conduct. He just won't allow himself to act in ways he knows are not right. I can tell a First Class scout by the quality of guy he is.

2. Your attitude toward others. He likes people and is concerned more with them than with himself. He really enjoys looking for that Good Turn to do each day and he's the kind of guy you like to have around.

3. Your vision. A real scout looks to the future, to the next campout, to the next merit badge, to the next school year, planning on how to succeed and determined to Be Prepared for what is coming.

When you are sure of yourself, concerned for others, and ready for new adventure, then I'd say you're a First Class Scout!
