Boy Scouts of America - Troop 534 "Hey!" - Chicago, IL, USA


Some have wondered why Troop 534 is so steeped in tradition. Our reasons are well articulated by this sign at the University of Michigan’s Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, MI.

Tradition is our strength, forged over decades of self-sacrifice, of commitment to others and a greater cause.

Tradition is our accumulated experience.

Tradition is success and failure and how we handle both. It is time tested values and morals and ethics that define us.

Tradition is who we are and what we stand for.

Tradition is our future’s foundation.

Well said, University of Michigan. And thank you Edward T. Hightower (Troop 534 Eagle in 1979, Michigan MBA in 1995) for sharing this quote.
