One need only look as far as the local Boy Scouts for the embodiment of leadership.
With 236 area youth taking part in the program that puts God, family and country above all else, examples of good deeds are abundant.
On Tuesday night, the scouts honored a group of brothers whom they felt exemplify everything they stand for.
The Baird brothers, Nolan, Nathan, Roy, Virgil, Chester and Adrion were presented with the 2011 Good Scout award in front of a crowd of family and friends. Nathan and Virgil were honored posthumously.
