Unit Leader Award

Unit Leader Award of Merit - 2015


Dave Michie – Troop 631

Dave began his career in Scotland where he earned the rank of First Class. When he came to the United States he re-joined Scouting when his son was in the third grade. He has been involved with Scouting ever since, over 23 years. Dave has always been very organized and focused in regard to teaching Scouts what it means to have Scout Spirit. He cares about the mission of Scouting and each member of the troop.During his tenure 25 scouts will have earned Eagle. He doesn't push this, it happens in a natural progression with the boys leading the way while having a great time. We have been very lucky to have Dave in our community in general and Scouting in particular.

Dan Hinz - Committee Chair, Troop 631

Since I joined the Boy Scouts four years ago, Mr. Michie has been an inspiration to me, not only in Scouting,but in the way I live my life. He has taught me how to be a good leader in mytroop and he has helped me advance to my current rank of Life scout. I have been our Senior Patrol Leader for several months under Mr. Michie and he is probably the reason that I accepted that position. I have watched him since I crossed over and I think that he is one of the best leaders I have ever met. He has worked for the betterment of scouting and the improvement of many local youths,and I am glad I had the privilege to work with him and around him.
