Dylan Mathews of Union Point has earned the highest award in Cub Scouting, The Arrow of Light. He is the first Cub Scout to ever earn this award in Greene County. Dylan started in Cub Scouting as a Bobcat and worked his way through Tiger, Bear, Wolf, and Webelos ranks to earn this award as a Cub Scout in Pack 312.
The highest award in Cub Scouts, The Arrow of Light, is earned by Webelos that have been active participants in their den and are ready to join a Boy Scout troop. Many of the requirements for the Arrow of Light are intended to familiarize the scout with a local troop and hopefully show him that crossing over into a troop is the next step to take in scouting. A scout that earns his Arrow of Light patch has also completed nearly all the requirements to earn the Scout badge in the troop so he has already begun his Boy Scout trail. The Arrow of Light is a distinguished Cub Scout award and is comparatively equal to the Eagle Scout award earned by Boy Scouts. Dylan has now bridged over to Boy Scouts and joins the ranks of Troop 316. Both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts meet at First United Methodist Church in Downtown Greensboro.
