Police officer wins scout leader award

A TERRACE RCMP officer has been selected for a 2012 Scout Leader award.

A TERRACE RCMP officer has been selected for a 2012 Scout Leader award.

Constable Angela Rabut, an 11-year veteran of the RCMP and the Crime Prevention/Media Liaison coordinator, has been a volunteer with Scouts Canada for three years.

“They were short leaders, so I stepped up and volunteered. It is a great opportunity to be a role model and to interact with youth in a positive atmosphere. I have really surprised myself at how much I enjoy being ‘Rusty,'” says Rabut, referring to her Beaver leader name.

Her son, Thomas Dame, accepted the award on her behalf as she was on training at the Pacific Region Training Cenre in Chilliwack.

Her three sons have been enrolled in the Scouts program for five years.

“I really try to keep our meetings active and outdoors. Back to the basics, something lacking with our electronic filled world,” says Rabut.

“On and off duty, it is members like Constable Rabut that demonstrate commitment to our community,” says Terrace RCMP Inspector Dana Hart.

Beavers is the entry level for Scouts Canada for boys and girls between ages 5 to 7.

Beavers meet once a week for 10 months of the year.

Plus, there are camps on some weekends and other extra meetings for various activities.

Commitment and a positive attitude are key to the success of the program.

Terrace has 33 registered leaders and 94 registered youths.

It is one of the most successful programs in B.C.
