Local Eagle Scout Establishes LGBT-friendly Boy Scout Unit

Lake Miller says his work in justice and equality issues largely comes from how he was raised, and the work his mother has done in her life.

In this WYSO Weekend excerpt, meet Lake Miller from Yellow Springs, Ohio. He'll soon be heading to college and says he'll specialize in either entrepreneurship or business management at Wittenberg University.

Lake will likely do well with either decision—even now the 18-year-old Eagle Scout is the youngest member of the national Scouts for Equality Leadership Council and he's just begun the first LGBT-friendly Boy Scout unit at Temple Israel in Dayton.

To find out what's behind that effort we spoke to Lake in the WYSO studios earlier this week.

For more information on Lake's efforts and the Boy Scout unit at Temple Israel, you can contact him at lakesphotos@sbcglobal.net
