2020 Silver Beaver Award Recipients

Posted by Darlene Scheffler Thursday, August 20, 2020 8:00:00 PM

The Silver Beaver Award is the highest form of recognition that a local council can bestow on a volunteer. In 1931, BSA President Mortimer L. Schiff recommended to the national board that an award be devised for recognition of distinguished service to youth in the area of a local council, and the concept of the Silver Beaver Award recognition was established.

The Sam Houston Area Council has participated in this recognition program since its inception, presenting Silver Beaver Awards in 1931 to W. A. Childress and to E. A. Hudson. Beginning with those first two awards, more than 1,500 adult leaders in our council have been recognized in this manner.

Congratulations to the 2020 Silver Beaver Recipients. The awards will presented at the Council Recognition Reception.
