2013-14 Class of Silver Beaver Recipients
The Boy Scouts of America, acting through the National Court of Honor, annually presents the Silver Beaver Award for distinguished service to youth in the local community. This award is the highest honor a Boy Scout Council can bestow on a volunteer. The award will be presented at the Central Florida Council Recognition Banquet, Friday, June 13, 2014 at 7:00PM. The banquet will be held at the Buena Vista Palace Resort and Spa, 1900 Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830.
Recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. The award is presented to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. Most importantly, it is presented to those who do not actively seek it. Thirty-one very qualified nominations were received and considered by the awards committee.
Based upon prescribed criteria, related to the number of youth served, the Central Florida Council is entitled to present this award to fourteen recipients.
