Funded ProjectsFirst Grant to the Boy Scouts

July 4, 2011

The first grant from The Chris Mikesell Foundation was to the Clearwater, Kansas Boy Scout Troop #898 in the amount of $300.

As Chris was growing up, scouting allowed him to develop his camping and hiking skills and taught him much about the inter-dependence of people and nature. He worked his way to the rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor.
