On May 30, 2012, the National Committee of the Boy Scouts of America approved Josh Henry, an Eagle Scout, to receive its Distinguished Service Award (DSA) for outstanding service to the organization on a National basis. Prior to 2012, only 4 Distinguished Service Awards have been presented to Jackson-Metro residents since its creation in 1940. Josh serves as a member of the National Committee, where he plans and executes large scale national events. A professional writer, producer and director before entering law school, Josh also writes and produces creative content for live stage shows and theatrical entertainment at events such as the National Scout Jamboree. The National Committee will recognize Josh during the 2012 National Conference (NOAC) at Michigan State University.
