Local Scout earns 2nd religion badge

From Press Reports


DJ Carpenter of Mathiston worked hard to complete the requirements for his second religion badge, God and Family.

In January 2012 the Rev. Larry Halford awarded DJ with his second religion badge. Bro. Larry and DJ worked throughout the 2011 year to complete the requirements. Not only did DJ complete the requirements but he knows and uses the things he learned on a daily basis. DJ thanks Bro. Larry for all of his help with this part of his scouting journey.

Also, Wallace Norman Jr. presented DJ with a religious award for the God and Family religion badge at the 2012 Pushmataha Area Council Annual Recognition Dinner.

DJ is now an active Boy Scout and is beginning his third religion award, God and Church. As he begins this journey his family asks people to stay in prayer for him.

“We are very proud that he can learn everyday life values and put them to use in his life through the scouting world,” his family stated. “We are very proud of you and all of your accomplishments. DJ, keep an open mind and positive attitude, and you will succeed in your Trail to Eagle.”
