When a former US presidential candidate and business powerhouse speaks, you listen. And that’s just what Scouts did at the Caddo Area Council‘s 2015 Scout-O-Rama in Texarkana, Texas, when Ross Perot came to visit.
Ross Perot is one of the most well-known men in the US and just so happens to be a proud Eagle Scout. The famous Scout flew in via helicopter to Spring Lake Park, Texarkana and delivered an unforgettable speech to ‘rama-goers.
“It has been an honor and privilege to be associated with Scouting throughout my life,” said Perot. “Scouting has had a powerful, positive impact on our country. Think what a great country this would be if everybody lived the Boy Scout motto – Be prepared.”
