Belleville District 118
Nick, who is a Cub Scout, was on a camp out with his pack. While they were there, Nick observed a boy hitting another boy in the leg with a stick. Knowing this was not how Cub Scouts act, he asked the offender to stop hitting the other Scout. When the hitting continued, Nick stepped in and confronted the offender, telling him that it was unacceptable. Even when the offender turned and started yelling at Nick, he stood his ground. So today we honor Nick Cline for doing the right thing!
Thanks to his bravery and integrity, Nick made a difference at camp. Ms. Nicole Green who nominated him stated, “Nick continued to do the right thing, by standing his ground and telling the offender that what he was doing was wrong, and that he was going to tell an adult. Because of Nick’s actions the offender not only left Nick alone, but also left the boy he was originally hitting alone!” What a great citizen you are, Nick! We are so proud of you!
