From the Albums of Bill Shaffer – Mark Herhold Camping Award

Mark Herhold Camping Award

At a recent Court of honor, we presented four Mark Herhold Camping Awards to four scouts who had accumulated over 100 days and nights camping in their scouting tenure so far. The four scouts, were excited to get the award but what made it even more special was that Mark Herhold, the scout for whom the medal was named, was in attendance. Mark was the Senior Patrol Leader of Troop 26 back in the early 70’s, earning his Eagle Scout Award, and attending both Northern Tier and Philmont. During that time he never missed a campout, a summer camp, or a troop meeting. What made that record truly remarkable was that he was also active in his church, Good Shepherd Lutheran, played football and baseball, and was an excellent student as well. Those are the reasons the medal bears his name. The troop made a special presentation of the Mark Herhold Camping Award….to Mark Herhold.  Pictured with Mark are Alex R., Mitch H., Nick B., & Logan S.
