Jennifer Lowe had two thoughts after she and other BSA delegates met President Barack Obama yesterday in the Oval Office of the White House.
Thought one: Delivering the BSA’s annual Report to the Nation to the President of the United States was an incredible honor.
And thought two?
“The president seems a lot taller when you’re standing next to him.”
Lowe and eight other youth representatives from the Boy Scouts of America are in Washington, D.C., all week on a whirlwind tour of our nation’s capital.
But for Lowe, meeting the president was the best moment of all—even if she was a little shaky beforehand.
“I was very nervous until I got into the Oval Office,” she said, “but the president met us at the door and greeted us very warmly. We gave our report and had some prime photo ops.”
