Scouts recognize Jonathan Doherty, an active volunteer in Albion
Provided photo: Jonathan Doherty, left, is pictured with his friend Ben Metcalf on Thursday in Elba when Doherty received an Award of Merit from the Iroquois Trail Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
Doherty, an Eagle Scout, has remained active with scouts in Albion as an adult, including his current role on the Program Planning Committee for Troop 164.
He was called a perfect representative for the Boy Scouts, and an eager promoter of the values of the program.
He also is active with the Self Advocate All Stars through the Arc of Genesee Orleans. Doherty helped start that group in 2006.
He also volunteers with the Albion Alumni Association, Strawberry Festival Committee and other community organizations.
