on May 10, 2008 in Scouting

Here are a few Boy Scouts that grew up and became well known polititians, Senators, governors, and even presidents. (Unfortunately, a couple of these seemed to have forgotten the twelve points of the Scout Oath after they grew up.)

James Brady – Former Press Secretary to President Reagan (Eagle Scout)
Willaim Sessions – Former FBI Director (Eagle Scout)
Murphy J. “Mike” Foster – Governor of Louisiana (Eagle Scout)
Gary Locke – Governor of Washington State (Eagle Scout)
