AMORY – Pack 56 cubmaster Don Baker recently received the Good Shepherd Emblem, a national recognition for adults who have rendered outstanding service to Baptist youth through their church and one of the national youth-serving agencies, which in Baker’s case is the Boy Scouts.
Baker was nominated for the award by fellow scouter Chris Driskill, who also presented him the award.

The emblem is made available through the Association of Baptists for Scouting in cooperation with the national youth serving agencies. Its purpose is to acknowledge distinguishing service by laypersons and pastors leading toward the spiritual, physical, mental and moral development of Baptist youth through service to the church and its youth programs.
Winning recipients are those who have made an exemplary contribution to his or her church and one of the youth-serving agencies. It is preferable that this leadership extend over a period of no less than 10 years.
Recipients must have a minimum of five years of active service in one or more of the national youth-serving agencies and a like tenure of active service in local church ministry.
