Troop 129 Scoutmaster Recognized

Enrique Gutierrez, the Scoutmaster of Westminster’s Boy Scout Troop, was recently honored by the DC Fire & Emergency Medical Services Departments for providing life-saving assistance. On March 28, Enrique was among six persons who assisted Angelia Boddie, a 20-year veteran of DC Fire & EMS, after she lost consciousness while driving. Enrique rushed to get a defibrillator from his office and used his CPR training to help administer chest compressions and mouth to mouth until paramedics arrived. According to the Colonial District newsletter, Enrique “serves as an example that the lessons learned in Scouting are indeed preparing Scouts. For life.”
