Date Introduced : March 17, 1999

WHEREAS, In a society that grows increasingly fragmented and fractious, and all too often tempts its youth to selfish and unwise decisions, it is a very special young man who chooses to dedicate himself to the service of others by putting into practice the noble ideals of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Christopher Beauregard is just such a first-rate youth, and his accomplishments are truly deserving of our recognition; and
