Boy Scouts of America

Scouting community volunteer, Martha Darling, and the Bank of Ann Arbor were both honored for their contributions to the Scouting program in October. Darling, who has served in volunteer leadership roles at the local, state, national and international level, received the Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizen Award, while the Bank of Ann Arbor was honored with the first-ever Distinguished Business Award.

Starting as a Den volunteer for her son David’s Cub Scout pack, Darling has worked extensively in the Scouting program and Ann Arbor community as a past board member of organizations such as the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum and the Ann Arbor Symphony.

Charles Crone, Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for the Bank of Ann Arbor, said he sees these leadership qualities in his employees who are Eagle Scouts “Scouting’s important because it clearly develops leadership skills in our youth and our country needs these leadership skills.”

    Boy Scouts are creepy, mostly because of the parental figures. All come with some hidden agenda, whether it’s military or financial or some other niche training. It can be good for most kids but it’s also like the sports trainers or priests… Strange things happen in some troops.
