Kenneth Shinozuka, 15 years old, a new Eagle Scout from Washington Heights in Manhattan Troop 729 was selected as a delegate to represent the 2.5 million youth members of the Boy Scouts of America during the 2014 Report to the Nation in Washington, DC. All of us in New York City Scouting and Exploring are very proud of Kenneth’s selection for this important responsibility and opportunity. The program is scheduled to take place from February 21-26, 2015 in which he, along with a few other Scouts selected from throughout our nation, will have the honor of meeting the President of the United States Barrack Obama, key congressional leaders, and other national leaders to share Scouting’s 2014 Report to the Nation. We congratulate Kenneth on his selection and look forward to his representing Greater New York Councils in his capacity as a delegate. You may recall that Kenneth invented an ingenious device to help keep his grandfather and other Alzheimers’ patients safe. His work has gained national media attention and has won him praises and awards from the like of Google National Science Fair and Scientific American Magazine. Kenneth will report on his trip as a delegate to the Report to the Nation and on his invention at our Greater New York Councils Annual Meeting on February 12, 2015. The BSA Report to the Nation has been made annually to Congress as a part of the Congressional Charter of the Boy Scouts of America, first issued on December 6, 1915, bringing a select delegation of outstanding youth to Washington, DC.
