Words can’t adequately describe our gratitude for the sacrifice that Silver Buffalo recipients have made to Scouting over their lives, but I’ll offer two anyway: Thank you.
Thank you to the 13 men and women who will receive Scouting’s highest honor for adults. The distinguished dozen will get their medals in a special recognition ceremony at the National Annual Meeting in May in Grapevine, Texas.
And they’ll join a prestigious list that includes Jimmy Stewart, Yogi Berra, Bill Gates, Robert Baden-Powell, and many more who have kept Scouting strong for more than a century.
Here are the 2013 recipients:
Carlos J. Arboleya — Miami, Fla.
Jean Arnold — Lebanon, Pa.
George N. Boulukos — Freeport, N.Y.
Jack S. Butler II — Blairsville, Ga.
Raymond Capp — Nashville, Tenn.
Ralph De la Vega — Alpharetta, Ga.
Russ Hunsaker — Salt Lake City, Utah
William Keeler — Timonium, Md.
Steve McGowan — Cross Lanes, W.Va.
Ellie Morrison — Waco, Texas
Barack Obama — Washington, D.C.
John F. Pyfer, Jr. — Lancaster, Pa.
James Wilson — McLean, Va.
