Putnam has long been involved with the Boy Scouts of America. He earned his Eagle Scout Award at the young age of 15 from Troop 95 in Powdersville. He continued with scouts and earned an additional 6 Palm awards after his Eagle. The project that he led to earn his Eagle Scout Award was one of historical proportions. Putnam restored a 175 year old outdoor baptismal pool at Siloam Baptist Church located in Powdersville. At an estimated cost of $21,000, he obtained funds through donations and the help of business leaders throughout the community. The Baptist Courier and Powdersville Post spotlighted Putnam’s leadership and dedication on this endeavor on multiple occasions. He was awarded an Outstanding Leadership Award for leading his Troop while he was the Senior Patrol Leader. He also became an Assistant Scoutmaster after he was eighteen and still supports the scouting efforts today.
