Herndon’s Cub Scout Pack 913 awarded 18 of its Webelos II scouts with the Arrow of Light Award at Dranesville Elementary School on Friday, March 23. The Arrow of Light is the highest award in the Cub Scouting Program. Once achieved, each scout crossed a ceremonial bridge, symbolizing their transition from Cub Scouting into Boy Scouting, and received their red Boy Scout neckerchiefs. All 18 fifth grade boys graduated from Cub Scout Pack 913 into Boy Scout Troop 913 in Herndon.
