CenterPoint Energy was a patron sponsor in support of race relations and equal opportunities at the 4th Annual Andrew Jackson Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Whitney M. Young, Jr. Awards Dinner in Jackson, Miss., on July 23. Rickey Cotton, area manager in the Pearl region, right, serves on the council's board of directors and is district chairman.
“The awards ceremony helps distinguish outstanding service rendered by individuals and organizations whose community involvement includes developing and implementing scouting opportunities for youth from rural or low-income urban backgrounds,” said Cotton, who presented awards to this year's nominees. Proceeds from the dinner are used to support scouting in the council's 22-county area.
