A Venturing Summit Award Court of Honor was held for Katie Brunn on 12/21/16. Katie was the third Venturer in Chief Seattle Council to earn this award and the first female in the Western Region's Area 1. Previous Summit earners Jeremy Felty and Trenton Allison were present to give the Summit Charge.
The Summit award is the highest award available in the Venturing program and is comparable to the Boy Scout's Eagle. Some of Katie's accomplishments include staffing National Youth Leadership Training and Wood Badge, leading the Council Contingent Crew at the first VenturingFest at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, receiving training as a Kodiak Guide, attending NYLT Academy and completing over 140 hours of community service. Her Summit project was rebuilding the shooting range at Ensign Ranch.
Katie is currently serving as Chief Seattle Council's Venturing Officer's Association President and is also the Crew Guide for Venturing Crew 909.

When we asked people what was the most useful part of roundtable, one of the top responses was being able to talk and share ideas with other leaders. To let you stay a bit later, but still get home to your family, we moved the meeting up a half hour and will be sticking around for a bit to chat and share ideas.

The Council has increased its marketing so you may have applicants and persons interested in your Unit who simply need the Unit leader approval or contact. Much easier than finding a new recruit.
