Project Description

Curtis DeWulf – Volunteer Spotlight

The Northeast Iowa Council is pleased to honor Curtis DeWulf as a Spotlight Volunteer! Curtis received the Silver Beaver award for 2017!

Curtis DeWulf began his 40-year involvement in the Northeast Iowa council in 1976 as a Cub Scout in Pack 7, and later Pack 91. As a youth or an adult, his Scouting involvement has been extensive, consistent, and visible for more than 40 years in the Northeast Iowa Council. He is perhaps best known for faithfully demonstrating to everyone the 12th point of the Scout Law. All Boy Scouts know that the 12th point of the Scout law is that A Scout is Reverent. Curtis is the only person in the Council to have earned or been presented, as either a youth or an adult, every award that the Catholic Committee on Scouting can bestow.

Curtis’ has served on the District Committee, Woodbadge staff, summer camp staff, a committee adviser to the Order of the Arrow, NYLT adult adviser, and continues to work in the kitchen for numerous Scouting events. He also revived the local Catholic Committee on Scouting.

He is an active member of his church, and supplements this activity with his involvement in the Knights of Columbus Council. He became a 4th Degree knight in 2004, and a Recorder in 2005.

On behalf of the Northeast Iowa Council, please help us say thank you to a very dedicated Scouter, Curtis!
