Ben Keppers, Colby Schmid, Joshua Tabery and Jayson Young, members of Boy Scout Troop 54 Wadena, were honored with a Mass and reception on April 14 in St. Cloud. They were presented with the Knot and Medal for the Ad Altare Dei Award.

The award is given to Boy Scouts who have grown and developed in the Catholic faith while in Scouting. Only 3% of all scouts earn a religious emblem (fewer than Eagle Scout badge, which is 5%).
