Over 430 businesspeople from Southeastern Wisconsin converged on the Country Springs Hotel for Potawatomi Area Council’s 11th Annual Leadership Breakfast to learn more about Scouting in the area and hear Mike Huckabee’s views on leadership.
Mr. Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas, serving from 1996-2007, and campaigned for the 2008 Republican nomination for President. He has published five books, his latest, Do the Right Thing: Inside the Movement That’s Bringing Common Sense Back to America. Mr. Huckabee has numerous connections to Scouting; he was a Cub Scout and Boy Scout, one of his son’s is an Eagle Scout, the other was an Explorer.
In an interview with WITI-TV, Mike Huckabee explained, “Scouting is I think a very very important part of a young man growing up, and I think the words ‘On My Honor’ which starts the Scout Oath says it all… its about Honor.”
Mr. Huckabee’s keynote speech called for a “Return to Honor” and praised the Scouting movement. “A man who was once a Boy Scout or Eagle Scout has a great deal to offer a potential employer, and exceptional levels of responsibility and character”, said Mike Huckabee during the fundraising breakfast.
