It was only a matter of time...literally. On a sunny but cool afternoon, a Crew Review was convened by Admin VP Dante with Conner, Samantha, Zack, Christian, and Eric attending, while observed by Associate Advisors Duane and Bob. Grinning and standing before them was Jeff, who was grilled for the next half hour with a gauntlet of questions that probed deeply in leadership, dedication, vision, and character. It was just like watching batting practice. There was an obvious windup as each Board member spoke, a question pitched, and the bat swung to squarely stoke an answer back into play.
When it was all done, it was unanimous. Jeff had completed the last step to earn the first Venturing Silver Award in Crew 42.
