More than 200 Boy Scouts and 55 leaders camped out at Hampden-Sydney College February 24-26 for a merti badge weekend. They set up camp near Kirby Field House and met with professors and professionals, including local physician Dr. Robert C. Wade ’91 (above, demonstrating blood-pressure measurement), as they completed requirements for two merit badges. Scouts could choose from a wide variety of merit badges, including American Business, American Heritage, Chemistry, Citizenship in the World, Crime Prevention, Computers, Electricity, Fire Safety, Forestry, Law, Medicine, Sports, Weather, and more. The Boy Scouts saw a lot of the campus, meeting in Gilmer, Morton, Bagby, the Wilson Center, College Church, the Field House, and Kirk Athletic Center. The entire event was planned by Randy Reed ’82, a major gifts officer at the College. Despite some blustery weather, the event was a big success.
