The award recognizes a local resident who has significantly advanced the cause of the greater good and has made this a better community by:
- taking an active leadership role in activities that promote positive youth development;
- promoting the cause of a healthy business community;
- having involvement and leadership in service organizations or other community-wide endeavors;
- supporting charitable endeavors that seek to improve the quality of life for our local community;
- providing a positive role model for life and business that our Scouts and other young people should aspire to emulate.
The honorees are selected by a group of community peers in each county, including several former honorees along with input from our Chairman Roger Triftshauser.
Keynote Speaker for the event was Congressman Chris Collins. An Eagle Scout, Collins spoke about his experiences as a youth and adult Scouting leader. He has taken the values of Scouting to the halls of Congress, where he displays a Scouting flag outside his Capitol Hill office. His congressional coin displays the Boy Scout motto ‘Be Prepared’ and the Cub Scout motto ‘Do Your Best’.
Other honorees included Dan Wilson (Lockport), Jim Miles (Lyndonville), Larry Rogers (Pike), and Matt Cole (Livonia).
