Meet “Do the Right Thing” May winner Will Council

Chattanooga, TN (WDEF) –  Will Council is the winner of WDEF News12 and Integrity Automotive Group’s "Do the Right Thing" contest for the month of May.
     Colleague Adrian Hackett nominated him.  Hackett said, "Will has just done a tremendous amount of stuff for scouting.  Both with his local venture crew out in Ooltewah, and also on the council level working with the ropes courses and the climbing tower.  Any time that we need an extra set of hands Will always seems to find the time to do that."
     But even with his long history with the Boy Scouts, he had no idea he’d be thanked in such a big way.
     Council said, "I was not expecting this at all."
     Hackett said, "Any time we’ve ever needed anything, Will just really does go above and beyond and really works towards making sure that scouting is available for all the kids."
     He thought he dropped by the Cherokee Council offices just to work on the ropes course at Skymont, until we ambushed him. And even then, he still wanted just to get back to work.  He just attended this past weekend’s Order of the Arrow ceremony at the camp…  And talked about a close encounter with some coyotes nearby.
     Council said, "Right in the middle of it, the coyotes started howling and it was straight out of the old west, it sounded like a wolf pack going off.  And we all froze, just listened to it, full moon I think that night, it was gorgeous.  And he didn’t miss a beat.  He just picked right up from it and kept on going.  It’s amazing."
     Hackett added, "He grew up in the program. He’s an Eagle Scout as well, his daughter and son are both in the program, with his venturing crew.  And they’re both working at Skymont this summer as well.  So it will be a family affair up at Skymont this summer.  So we’re looking forward to that."
     But until then… Council said, "I still have a lot more work to keep going on."
