GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

He’s sold more than $12,000 worth of popcorn products throughout his Boy Scout career, and 10-year-old Logan shows no sign of slowing down.

Logan Detweiler, with the help of his father Eric Detweiler, has been peddling popcorn to fund Scout’s Adventure since he was 6-years-old.

This year he has a sales goal in mind, one that would be a record for him.

“For this year it’s $5,500.”

And he might get there, with the help of his best-seller.

“The premium popcorn, almonds, cashews and pecans.”

By selling thousands of dollars worth of popcorn, Logan has been able to go to a lot of different scout camps, enjoy a campout at Dow Diamond, a monster truck show and other fun activities.

“We have not put a dime into the scouting program, other than his initial registration fee. He has paid for all of his own adventures, he’s learned a lot about selling, dealing with people. He’s making his own way in the world, and that’s awesome,” said Logan’s dad Eric.

Logan eventually wants to go to Kettering University to become an auto engineer.

He’s on his way, 6 percent of his popcorn sales go towards a college scholarship.
