Scouting article shows support for people with special needs

Kindly accept our appreciation for a job well done by reporter Matt Palmer and The Catholic Review staff for the recent article “Eagle Scout overcomes obstacles” (CR, Oct. 23).

Mr. Palmer’s column crystallizes our proud partnership of Scouting under Catholic auspices to serve youth and adults in the church. “Hip, hip, hooray” for the church’s recognition of special needs youth and adults like Matthew through active sponsorship of a Scouting program. “Hip, hip, hooray” for adults like Scoutmaster Jim Dunne, Deacon Charles Hiebler and all the caring adults who make programs like this possible.

We are proud of what you stand for.

Ethan V. Draddy is a Scout executive.
