Boy Scouts Reaching Out for New Recruits

A part of American history turns 100 this year, and the celebration is still going on in Western Washington. The Boy Scouts of America just hit the century mark, and right now thousands of boys--and girls--are changing the face of this organization.
The Scouts are wrapping up a big outreach event at the Puyallup Fair this weekend. And they're celebrating 100 years with a new marketing campaign aimed at showing a modern side of an age-old tradition.

..."There are many misconceptions about the Boy Scouts that I'd like to address," said Moulds.  "I am thrilled to be leading the nation as a proponent of diversity in Scouting. Most people don't know it, but we even have girls in Boy Scouts of America and I think it is crucial for parents to know that we welcome youth and parents regardless of race, religion, economic backgrounds or social circumstances."

A girl at the helm of the Boy Scouts seems counter intuitive, but it is now a reality in Seattle, a city known for leading the nation in diversity. Sharon Moulds is breaking new ground as the highest-ranking female in the U.S. and the first woman to lead the Chief Seattle Council, Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
