Pulaski man was finalist in Spirit of Service Awards

Pulaski resident Archie Booth was a Senior Corps finalist in the 2008 Spirit of Service Awards sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
A member of Pulaski County RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program), Boothe was recognized for his years of volunteer service to Pulaski Daily Bread and as a Scout Master for Boy Scouts of America.
Pulaski Mayor Jeff Worrell recently presented Boothe with a framed finalist certificate at a meeting of Pulaski Town Council.
Worrell recognized Boothe for “selfless dedication to the ideal of strengthening his community by serving the less fortunate and ensuring a brighter future for America’s youth.”
Boothe joined RSVP in October 2006 as a volunteer for Pulaski Daily Bread, an ecumenical program that serves mid-day meals to the community five days a week.
In addition to serving on Daily Bread’s board of directors, he also helps with local fundraisers, collectioning donations, prepares and serves meals and maintains the inventory.
He collected about 65 percent of the canned food used to prepare nearly 34,000 meals there in 2007.
Boothe also has served as a Scout Master for 15 years. Fifty-eight of his scouts have attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
“He encourages his scouts to be good stewards of their community,” Worrell said. “With his encouragement he has seen many of his Eagle Scouts graduated from college to become physicians, attorneys, and high-ranking military officers.
Worrell said Boothe also “used his leadership skills” to get the scouts involved in an annual cleanup of Draper’s Mountain and picking up litter along the road over Draper’s Mountain, leading into the Town of Pulaski.
Asked why he unselfishly devotes his time to helping others, Worrell said Boothe responded, “I am not unselfish, my heart gets a paycheck every time I see one of these young men become a volunteer and give back to the community. Seeing my encouragement pay off through the commitment of others is all the reward I need.”
