Susie Ryan Curtis, assistant Scout executive of the Boy Scouts of America, spoke to the Kiwanis Club. She explained the changes for the Boy Scouts in that girls will be able to become Scouts.
The Cub Scouts started having troops for girls this past June. The Boy Scouts will start having troops for girls February.
None of the new troops will be co-ed. Girls have been a part of Troops for years, so the changes will not be major.
Scouts teach kids to be good citizens with a positive Scout law, she said.
