Good Scout

— by on June 21st, 2010

Todd Brown, a 1985 graduate of Washington and Lee and a 23-year resident of Culpepper, Va., just received a major award from his home community — the 11th annual Good Scout Award.

The Piedmont District Boy Scouts of America give it to residents who embody scouting principles through their work and community service.

Todd moved to Culpeper to open an Edward Jones investment office. As he told the Culpepper Star-Exponent, he was given his choice of 15 towns in the Southeast and chose Culpepper as the place to spend the rest of his life.

An Eagle Scout himself, Todd has been involved in numerous community activities, including Culpeper Renaissance, the Windmore Foundation for the Arts, the Chamber of Commerce, the Knights of Columbus, the Dawn Lions, the Rotary Club and the Soap Box Derby. He also performed as a drummer in the local band, Short Biggie.

Thanks to Todd’s classmate, Bruce Potter, regional publisher for Media General’s Northern Virginia Community Newspapers, for sending us the news about Todd.
