On May 3, Boy Scouts of America Dan Beard Council held it’s annual Spirit of Scouting Award Ceremony. Each year they honor community members who most exemplify the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.
Scout Oath: On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent
This year UCBMA President Becky Wilber and her husband Todd Wilber were honored with the Spirit of Scouting Award with Sheriff Richard Jones.
Becky and Todd grew up in very small Midwest towns. Todd is from Northern Michigan and Becky hails from the great state of Wisconsin. They always believed they would accomplish awesome things in their lives. As young people, they participated in Scouts. These programs developed many of the values they lived by, raised their children by and trained their staff by throughout the years. Becky and Todd own 11 Taco Bells and 1 Uno Pizzeria & Grill in the Cincinnati area. They employ about 400 people.
Becky is also the president of Union Centre Boulevard Merchant Association, an organization that rallies small businesses to give back! Each year the Union Centre Food Truck Rally is organized to raise money for a local, deserving non-profit organization. Last year the Heroes’ Fund received over $14,000 for their mission!
Congratulations, Becky, Todd and Sheriff Jones!
