Sea Scout Brenda Renninger, awarded the outstanding Sea Scout for Ship 548 at the regional Bridge of Honor, has been appointed boatswain’s mate of the Northeast region.
Renninger just completed a year as the Chesapeake Flotilla boatswain, which made her the top Sea Scout youth leader for Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Delaware and the western part of Pennsylvania. Now, as the boatswain’s mate for the region, she is the second highest youth leader in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
She will preside over Sea Scout activities such as training weekends, regattas, Bridges of Honor and sailing rendezvous in the region. She will also represent the youth and advise the adult leaders on the members needs. Next year, she will automatically become the regional boatswain and will then be the top youth leader in the Northeast for 2013-2014.
Sea Scouting is a co-ed program for young adults age 13 to 21. The Scouts learn boating safety and skills needed on and in the water. They take part in maritime activities locally, nationally and all over the world.
Renninger is a member of Sea Scout Ship 548, sponsored by Holy Angels Catholic Church in Avenue. For more information on Sea Scouting, visit www.seascoutship548.com or call 410-326-4291.
