Served for 3 years as the Spanish-Speaking Scoutmaster of a group of Latin American Scouts (Ranging from 11-18 years of age). These boys were brand new to Scouting. I facilitated weekly meetings, monthly camping trips, and quarterly Court of Honor Events. With the help of my assistant Scoutmaster, volunteers, and Scouts parents, we were able to accomplish great things with these young Scouts.

“I had the opportunity to work with Brandon Byrge for two years in the Scouting Program. As the Scoutmaster of the Spanish Speaking Branch, he constantly showed not only patience and compassion while working with those young men, but demonstrated management skills enabling us to achieve our goals while building in the boys the needed feeling of self-worth for their accomplishments.
When I was called to work with Brandon in the capacity of Committee Chairman, I soon learned that he was someone I could always depend on. I never had to worry about his part of the responsibility being accomplished; he always did more than his share and made me feel good about the support I was giving him.
I would highly recommend Brandon for any position requiring dependability and responsibility. He has the good judgment and skills to make the proper decisions in sometimes difficult situations. I would gladly work with Brandon again in whatever capacity. He has my full endorsement for whatever undertaking he attempts in the future. He has the drive and character necessary for success, and would certainly be of benefit to any organization.”

2 Year Full Time Service Mission Volunteer
Served as Missionary and District Leader over other Missionaries, full time, for 2 years for an International Non Governmental Service Organization. I lived and worked in both La Libertad, El Salvador and Chicago, IL. U.S.A.
“I have know Brandon Byrge for over ten years. We met as we worked together as missionaries for the LDS Church in Chicago, Illinois. Brandon proved himself there as a hard working, consistent, diligent, and honest worker. He got along very well with his fellow-missionaries and with all the people he worked among in Chicago. He was well liked and respected as he gained the skills necessary to be effective and applied those skills seven days a week in his missionary service over a two year period.
Since then I have seen Brandon as a husband and father who works hard to provide for his family and seeks to give them the best life has to offer them. He is a very loving husband and father. I have no qualms about giving Brandon my complete vote of confidence and my highest recommendation. I know that wherever he works, he will work hard and be loyal and honest with his employer. I would be happy to speak to a potential employer about my recommendations for Brandon.”
