Silver Beaver Recipient Lists

Ben Hauserman Good Scout Award

The Ben Hauserman Good Scout Award is named after a distinguished and long serving Council Executive Board member, Council President and National BSA volunteer. Ben was a recipient of the Silver Beaver and Silver Buffalo Award.  It is a local award that recognizes an outstanding volunteer who over many years has provided untiring service in the name of Scouting for our council. This is often a Scouter who goes about doing their job not for the recognition, but because it is the right thing to do.
