The Boy Scout troop leaders thought Tuesday was going to be a normal meeting.
But they were in for a surprise.
Representatives from WTHI News 10 were on hand at the Boy Scout Troop 95 meeting, which takes place at the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department, to present the couple with its Make A Difference award for the month of October.
"This is really great," Jeff said. "This is really super and very unexpected. We didn't have a clue."
They were nominated by friend Teea Lunsford.
"They're fantastic people," Lunsford said.
Lunsford said the Myers have been troop leaders for the local group for approximately 14 years. In that time, they have helped transform 21 Boy Scouts into Eagle Scouts through community projects.
Lunsford also made a congratulatory cake for the couple.
The Myers received a plaque Tuesday by WTHI News 10 personality Jane Santucci.
The TV 10 news crew used a little trickery in order to present the award.
As they entered the firehouse, the crew asked if they could speak to the Myers, giving the impression they were working on a news story.
Former scouts were also on hand to celebrate with Jeff and Cheryl.
Jeff said receiving the plaque was nice, but working with the boy scouts is what he wants to do.
"This is really all about the boys," he said.
The Make A Difference awards are presented monthly to those who contribute to their communities.
