Lansing, Mich — The CEO of the Michigan Crossroads Council, Donald Shepard, has issued a response to the the national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America is the only entity involved in the Chapter 11 filing.
