JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL)- The Sequoyah Council issued a statement Tuesday saying they have “not filed for bankruptcy” after it was announced the national organization of the Boy Scouts of America was involved in a Chapter 11 filing.

The news release said in part, “The Sequoyah Council – which provides programming, financial, facility and administrative support to local units and individual Scouts in our area – is separate and distinct from the national organization. Our camps, properties, and all local contributions are controlled by our council. “

Sequoyah Council officials also said there should be no change to the local scouting experience.
