Thursday, October 11, 2012 El Paso, Texas Speech Text of Gov. Perry’s Remarks at the Inaugural “Good Scout” Luncheon
I consider myself blessed to have grown up in Scouting, for the opportunities it gave me, the challenges it placed in my path, and the friendships I made along the way. In my mind, no other organization has salvaged more lives, built more confidence or created more leaders than the Boy Scouts of America. That’s why I spend so much time supporting and promoting BSA, and why I take every opportunity to tell people about the profound and lasting good this organization does.
