A Katanning Scout has become the fourth member in the club’s history to obtain the peak achievement for Cub Scouts — and the third in the past 12 months. Harrison Woithe received his Grey Wolf Award at a ceremony at Dome Katanning on June 24, after completing the program with two days to spare. 1st Katanning Scout Group Leader Hilary Harris told the crowd Harrison was an adventurous, confident and bright member. “He thrives with the opportunity to be independent and to be in the great outdoors,” she said. “His cheeky manner, big voice and desire to do it himself has made him a prominent and well-liked member of our Cub Unit.” Harrison’s particular interest in scaling anything he can has become well known within the Scout group. “’If you can’t find Harrison, look up’ has become a leader catchphrase,” Ms Harris said. “His love of climbing sees him up the top of the Scout climbing wall at every Cubilee, up any tree he can find and doing the most descents of the whole unit at our abseiling camp to Mountain Quarry.” To complete the Grey Wolf Award, Harrison completed Level 3 in his Bushcraft, Camping and Bushwalking skills, and Level 1 in his Boating, Aquatics, Vertical and Cycling skills. As part of completing his six special interest badges, Harrison collected and donated thousands of stationery items which were donated to GiveWrite. His other special interest areas included vegetable gardening, tractor maintenance, fishing, mine site rehabilitation and cooking. For his Adventurous Journey, Harrison was required to plan a hike, complete a risk assessment and then lead fellow Cub Scouts on a 12km journey along the Holland Track in what Ms Harris described as “absolutely freezing cold weather”. The group also toured the Broomehill Museum. She said the completion of the award so close to the deadline did not diminish Harrison’s achievement.
