Heroes are around us every day … some do great things, such as saving another person's life, while others quietly do small acts of kindness that go unnoticed, but may be just as important in someone's life. We are proud of all of our heroes in the Mid-America Council - the Scouts who come together on a cool Saturday morning to collect food for the needy, the single parent who donates time as a Scout leader, the boy who stands up for what is right when his friends are making poor choices … the members of Omaha's Troop 100 who res- cued a toddler from drowning, an Omaha-born youth who went on to become both an Eagle Scout and President of the United States, and two Okoboji Scouts who saved a fellow Scout from hypothermia.
