I travelled and went on adventures throughout the length and breath of Ireland, England and Scotland as a young boy.“It set me the greatest foundation in life and played a strong role in the success in life – right to the summit success on the north side of Mt Everest .“So much a role did scouting play in my early life that of all the things I could have brought to the summit, the only thing I brought and wore was my original cub/scout scarf which still means so much to me. “I spoke lately at the northwest founders day to all the cub/ scouts and it was great to see that scouting is still at grass roots level was untouched by technology and purely still about the simple things in life, teaching great life skills to young children that will serve them well in a fruitful direction in life.“After a lifetime in scouts, I’m extremely honored to receive this award which once again signifies that, with the right focus, determination and training, everyone can achieve anything in this life.“There is no mountain too high and there is no problem too BIG to conquer”. ADVENTURER JASON BLACK RECEIVES TOP AWARD FROM SCOUTING IRELAND was last modified: March 8th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Jason BlackScouting Irelandlast_img
