This group of recipients have made a positive impact on others as husbands, fathers, and community leaders. Those being honored have influenced and inspired others as public servants, educators, philanthropists, and business leaders whose long-term impact is a cornerstone within our communities. These men have held to the standards set forth in the Scout Oath and Scout Law and have exemplified a Duty to God in their daily living.
