Coach Richard Robertson was recognized as a man who instilled the values of scouting in those he’s mentored and coached during Monday night’s Covington County Boy Scout Golden Eagle Dinner.

Keron Kyzar, pitch-hitting for this year’s dinner chairman, Amy Jones, who was unable to attend because of a family illness, introduced Robertson.

Kyzar said while Robertson was not part of the scouting program in Andalusia, he instilled the character of scouting in those he coached and in those with whom he has worked at the Coleman Center.

The Boy Scout Law teaches scouts to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

“All that he has done over the last 45 years was not for the personal recognition, but for the love of doing it and for the good of the young people with whom he worked,” Kyzar said.

Table hosts for the fundraising event were Mayor Earl Johnson, Bob and Denise Brooks, Christle Blocker, Rebecca Brewer, Patti Ashworth, Chris Jackson, Matt Mancil, Alan and Eddie Williamson, Greg Henderson and David Darby.

Southeast Alabama Gas District was the dinner sponsor. Platinum sponsors were the Solon and Martha Dixon Foundation. Silver sponsor were Andalusia Distributing Company, George and Patricia “Sister” Barnes, and David and Laura Darby.

Scout Sponsors were Dr. Tim and Melanie Day, Dr. Mark and Patricia Gable, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Livaudais, Henderson Sewing Machine Co., Palmer and Sons, CDG Engineers, the Honorable Trippy McGuire, Ed and Gloria Short, Andy Cable, George and Sara Momenpour and David Baker.Coach Richard Robertson was recognized as a man who instilled the values of scouting in those he’s mentored and coached during Monday night’s Covington County Boy Scout Golden Eagle Dinner.
