It's been instilling values in young men for almost a century. Next month the Boy Scouts of America turns 100.
The big anniversary is Monday, February 8. To mark the occasion, Eagle Scouts will gather on the court house steps at noon in each of their counties. That day they will also meet with Gov. Bev Perdue.
Local Boy Scouts leaders say this anniversary is more about the future than the past.
