Boy Scouts officially accepting girls into troops

Local News

As of today The Boy Scouts of America are welcoming girls into their troops, changing the name from “Boy Scouts” to “Scouts BSA”.

This means young women between the ages of 11 and 17 can hold the rank of eagle scout, the highest rank the organization offers, and work alongside boys earning merit badges.

The organization first announced they were going to include girls in 2017.
