Perkins as a mentor

Dear Editor:I have recently learned that my mentor, Meredith Perkins, was named the grand marshal of the Downey Christmas Parade. I wish to congratulate him for achieving this honor as he was and still is a very positive influence in my life. Mr. Perkins encouraged me throughout my Boy Scouts career to become an Eagle Scout and his participation in my Eagle Scout ceremony added a touch of class to that event. The lessons that I learned from him will never be forgotten. Mark Montero Florida Institute of Technology
