“When Hurricane Matthew struck, Ron and his family were left with no electricity or television.  Yet as a 14 year old, his first thought was to text one of his Scout leaders asking how he could help bring glory to God in this disaster.  Over the next several days, Ron and other Scouts helped serve more than 2,000 meals each day at a Red Cross shelter, putting in more than 1,000 hours of combined community service,” explained Congressman Pittenger.  “On behalf of Congress and the people of Lumberton, we are proud of Ron and look forward to witnessing the great things God has planned for this tremendous young man.”
