LDS Teen Who Challenged BSA's Special Needs Restrictions Gets Standing Ovation on Utah Senate Floor


“I think the young man sitting here has changed history,” Senator Jim Dabakis said. “That giant institution, the Boy Scouts of America, yielded to Logan Blythe and now there is a separate track for all Boy Scouts of America who are mentally challenged because of what this young man did.”

Sen. Jim Dabakis on Wednesday honored a Payson teenager from the Senate floor who he said he believes has changed history.

Logan Blythe, 15, was involved in a lawsuit that claimed he was not accepted into a Boy Scouts of America Alternative Eagle Scout Program due to his mental disability.
