GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Oct. 2, 2014 – The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) will award both WMU-Cooley Law School Assistant Dean Tracey Brame and her husband, Kenyatta Brame, who is an adjunct professor at WMU-Cooley, with the Whitney M.

The service award will be presented at the Fulfilling the Dream fundraising luncheon on Monday, October 6 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

 

The Whitney M. Young Jr. Service Award is the highest national BSA award that recognizes outstanding service by an adult individual or by an organization in support of youth from a low-income background. The award is presented by the national office of the Boy Scouts of America.

 

“Kenyatta and Tracey Brame are tremendous supporters of the Boy Scouts of America, and we’re thrilled to present them with the Service Award,” said Wayman Britt, president of the Gerald R. Ford Council Boy Scouts of America. “Their efforts to help low-income and disadvantaged youth get involved in our programs have changed the lives of many.”

The proceeds of the Fulfilling the Dream luncheon benefit the Scoutreach program of the BSA and will serve the inner city, rural and troubled youth in communities across the state. For more information on the Boy Scouts of America, visit www.scouting.org
