Scouting Honors

The new Scouting Honors Program celebrates the achievements of National Council employees when they demonstrate a commitment to the BSA operating principles and deliver a quality Scouting experience to more youth. There are three levels of awards—Silver Compass, Silver Blaze, and Silver Benchmark. Thirteen Silver Compass recognitions were presented during the July-September timeframe. Of those, three employees were chosen by the Diversity Committee to receive the Silver Blaze Award which was presented at the November National Staff Meeting.
