New BSA president Rex Tillerson among 2010 Silver Buffalo Award recipients

This year’s Silver Buffalo Award recipients have one thing in common: none of them set out to earn Scouting’s top honor.

But a lifetime of service to youth did not go unnoticed, and on Friday, 12 men received the red-and-white medal at the National Annual Meeting in Dallas.

We told you about the award’s 85-year history and previous recipients in a previous post.

Among the 2010 honorees is the new President of the Boy Scouts of America, Rex Tillerson (pictured). Tillerson, who also serves as CEO of Exxon Mobil, began his two-year term as BSA president last week.
