Logan Hickman, chairman of the twelfth annual Boy Scouts of America Campbell County Good Scout Award Dinner, is pleased to announce that the 2019 honoree is long time Campbell County resident Pastor Ronnie Arnold (top photo).  Pastor Arnold is the minister at Cedar Hill Baptist Church.     This yearly ceremony and dinner will occur at the Ball Farm Event Center, 2107 General Carl W. Stiner Highway, LaFollette on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 6:00 PM.  The money raised at the event will support Campbell County scouting in 2019.  This yearly dinner has evolved into Campbell County’s premier recognition banquet.

Pastor Arnold has lived in Campbell County for almost three decades.  October 2019 will mark his 30th year at Cedar Hill Baptist Church. The Arnold Family came to us from Memphis.  In Memphis, he completed his Master of Divinity degree at the Mid-American Theological Seminary.  Pastor Arnold also has an engineering degree from the University of Tennessee.  Under his leadership, the church has flourished adding a new sanctuary and a Family Life Center.  Pastor Arnold and his wife, Kathy, have been married since 1974 and have 4 adult children and four grandchildren.  It is also important to note that Cedar Hill Baptist Church is the charter organization for Scouts BSA Troop 310 and Cub Scout Pack 108.

Peoples Bank of the South is proud to underwrite the dinner’s expense for the twelfth year.  The bank understands the hugely important impact scouting has on the boys and girls of Campbell County.
