Russ Collins, Executive Director of the Michigan Theater Foundation, will receive a Distinguished Citizen Award for his dedication to Scouting at a dinner on November 7th at the Michigan Union’s Rogel Ballroom. “Boy Scouts were transformative for me,” Collins says. “I still remember the Scout Law and Oath. I also discovered inspiration in the words of Scouting Founder Sir Robert Braden-Powell, who said, ‘Singing and acting are excellent for training in self-expression. Also, they mean good teamwork, everybody learning his part and doing it well, not for applause for himself, but for the success of the whole show.’” Reception begins at 6pm, followed by the dinner program at 7pm.
