St. Ann Scouts Invited to KSU Assembly

The 1776 Color Guard will be a part of "Merit Badge University" in October.

Members of a Boy Scout troop based at the Catholic Church of St. Ann in East Cobb will be taking part in a major scouting event next month at Kennesaw State University. 

The color guard of Troop 1776 will participate in the official ceremonies at the 10th annual Merit Badge University, which takes place on Oct. 26.

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.
