Name Change Embraces Guys and Gals
The Boy Scouts of America’s flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts for more than a century, but with girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change. A new name, Scouts BSA, will take effect in February. Mike Surbaugh, chief executive of the Scouts, says, “We wanted to land on something that evokes the past, but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward. We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”
