On Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, Congressman Hal Rogers announced that Boy Scout Troop 90 from Perry County had earned the PRIDE Volunteer of the Month Award.“Boy Scout Troop 90 has been dedicated to cleaning up around Perry County for several years,” said Perry County PRIDE Coordinator Rosa Couch, who nominated the troop for the award.

The scouts volunteer for the annual Buckhorn Lake Cleanup. During the 2013 event, the troop cleaned up 22 bags of trash at the lake.

The troop routinely picks up roadside litter around several neighborhoods in the Hazard area.

The scouts keep the Eagles Landing Camp Ground clean. During their camp outings, the troop makes it a goal to always do a cleanup activity around their camp ground or area.

The PRIDE Volunteer of the Month program recognizes hard work and dedication to the PRIDE initiative, which promotes environmental education and cleanup efforts in a 42-county region. With corporate sponsorship from TECO Coal, WYMT-TV airs commercials about each PRIDE Volunteer of the Month.

Congressman Rogers co-founded PRIDE in 1997 with the late General James E. Bickford, who was the Kentucky Secretary of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection.
