Crystal Medlock

Crystal Medlock has been recognized for her commitment to Hope Scouts.

Area commissioner Jane Riddell presented her with the Medal of Good Service on Monday night, which is given to leaders within Scouting who have gone above and beyond “the faithful performance of ordinary duties.” Medlock was given a certificate, medal and flash for her uniform.

“I keep thinking the real reward in being a part of Scouting over the years has been the adventures with the youth and all the happiness and laughter that results,” said Medlock.

“But to receive this is such an honor and I am very thankful to those who were involved in this wonderful surprise. I can not wait to pay it forward in the future to the other adults in our community who give of their time and evenings to put on such a great program. Everything we do in Scouting is for the betterment of the community and the kids are the ones we are doing it for.”

Medlock was instrumental in starting the Scout group in Hope five years ago, and has since played an important role in its continued success.

Fellow leader Shanon Fischer said in the award application, “while we have a lot of great leaders, I don’t think we would be where we are without Crystal Medlock!”
