Kiama locals, Troy Bartrim and Nathan Jenkins started their scouting life at the same time, so it is only fitting that these close friends have re
ceived the prestigious Queen Scout Award together.
The Queen Scout Award represents three years of hard work incorporating a range of activities, with emphasis on personal growth, leadership development, community involvement and adventurous activities.
Both 18 year olds are proud of their achievements and say that even though it was hard work on their part, it was only possible through the help of family and Kiama Scout Leaders, past and present.
A special ceremony was recently held at the Kiama Scout Group Hall where family and friends of Nathan and Troy helped celebrated this award, along with Kiama Mayor, Mark Honey.
Nathan said that Scouts had given him the opportunity to travel overseas, meet new people and develop a range of life skills, which Troy and he are both taking into their new career paths.
