Gavin’s Skills Recognized with Trail Life USA Freedom Award
Gavin Klos is currently a senior homeschool student participating in the Seton Curriculum.
He has been recently recognized as a recipient of the Trail Life USA Freedom Award. The Freedom Award is a prestigious recognition of the highest level for the Trail Life USA scouting organization.
The Freedom Award is earned by demonstrating outstanding achievement by completing all of the scouting ranks from grade 5 through 12, performing over 100 hours of community service, participating in two high adventure backpacking trips for at least a week at a time, and completing a leadership project to benefit a non-profit organization within the community.
High Adventure Backpacking
Gavin chose to backpack across the Grand Canyon for one high adventure outing and to canoe and hike through the Boundary Waters region of Minnesota for the other. He served as a leader for his Tulsa troop 103 over the last year.
His leadership project involved cleaning out an outdoor garden space and designing and constructing a new prayer garden including the construction of an eight-foot wooden cross to benefit St. Bernard of Clairvaux Parish in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Gavin is now an adult leader of the troop and mentors the young men of his troop.
