Hunter Brock has been honored with a Venturing Summit Award.

“I was honored to receive this award,” he said. “I very much enjoyed the experience. Going through this will help me in my adult life.”

Venturing is a program through the Boy Scouts of America for males and females ages 14-21. Brock joined Venture Crew 309 in August, 2014.

Recipients of the award must go through the program and then complete a service project in the community. The service project must provide a valuable service that meets a need, and it must represent a significant personal growth experience through some combination of its scope and complexity.

Brock’s career pursuit is becoming an automotive technician. He offered free, 10-point vehicle inspections at different locations over a four-day period in May as his Venturing service project.

A ceremony was held. Melonie Turner, Venturing Crew 309 Committee chair, was among the presenters.

“To earn the highest Venturing award in Scouting, a Venturing Scout has to spend a great deal of time and effort,” said Turner. “Therefore, the occasion that recognizes their accomplishments should be something special.”

Brock is currently enrolled in the University of Northwestern Ohio to pursue an associate’s degree in automotive. He also has plans to take additional course work in diesel technology and high performance.
