Trent is our first recipient of the prestigious Millet Medal in beekeeping. Trent received his award at the recent Court of Honor where 12 scouts received their Beekeeping Merit Badge. Congratulations to Trent for his outstanding achievements in beekeeping and to all the scouts who distinguished themselves this year looking after the bees and harvesting the products of the hive.
Jean-Francois Millet was a 19th-century French artist who painted a wonderful painting called Des Glaneuses (The Gleaners). The painting now hangs in the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. Each year a beekeeper who demonstrates outstanding ability in the art of gleaning will receive the renowned Millet Medal. This year Trent demonstrated unparalleled prowess in the art of gleaning burr comb from hives.
