Silver Beaver Award

The Silver Beaver Award is bestowed by the National Court of Honor and presented for noteworthy service of exceptional character by councils to registered adult volunteers within the territory under the jurisdiction of a local council. It is the highest honor a local council may bestow upon a Scouting volunteer.

Nominations for the Silver Beaver awards consist of three parts:

  • Noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth
  • Exceptional service to the BSA
  • Service or standing within the community or community organization

The first awards were presented in the Greater Cleveland Council in 1931. Over the years, many familiar names have received the Silver Beaver, including Dr. B. Holly Broadbent, Samuel Mather, Charles McCahill, Frank Lausche, Nathan Dauby, Ellsworth H. Augustus, George Voinovich, and Henry P. McIntosh III.

Only four Troop 701 leaders have been recognized with this prestigious award.

Charles F. Williams 2005

Donald E. Young 2004

Joseph F. Wollet 2001

Mark Reinbrecht 1990
