The day-long event is an enrichment opportunity for scout merit badge honorees -- girls and boys -- to meet with local dignitaries and learn from the top counselors in advanced classes.
Among the special guests are U.S. Rep. Tom Price, Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens, Georgia State Rep. Ed Setzler, Cobb State Court Judge Eric Brewton, as well as business leaders and scout officials.
One of the new classes offered this year is a "sustainability merit badge" that will be taught by Ralph de la Vega, President and CEO of AT&T Mobility.
Other classes will offer scouts the chance to develop expertise in citizenship in the community, nation and world; communications, emergency preparedness; first aid; financial responsibility; robotics and weather.
