2020 Scouts of the Year
Maxwell Tindell, Cub Scout (Wolf), Pack 273

After receiving financial support to attend Day Camp as a Lion Scout, Max made it his mission to sell enough camp cards to send his Tiger Cub den to camp. He raised over $1,300 to send his entire den to camp. Max is an example of the Scout Oath and Law, he put his peers first and sacrificed his time and energy to make others happy.

During his time with the troop, Rithwik has grown to be a confident leader. It did not take long for Rithwik to stand out amongst his peers. He created a Mental Health Awareness Club at his high school after losing a close family friend.

He is active in varsity sports, has received several academic awards and is trilingual.
