Every year our Scoutmasters nominate Scouts who they feel best exemplify the Scouting Ideals. These are scouts who not only live the Oath, Law, Motto, and Slogan but who also have been instrumental in assisting other scouts and adult leaders and have demonstrated their leadership by example.

I am proud to announce that the following Scouts have earned the “Scout of the Year” award for 2012:

Tim Cyron – Tim is 17 years old, in 11th grade, and he earned his Eagle Scout in 2012. He is an active OA Brotherhood member and has been our Order of the Arrow Representative now for 12 months and was also Chaplain’s Aide at Philmont during the summer of 2012. Tim was Scout-in-charge for the Memorial Day flag decoration and Salvation Army holiday box making. In 2012 he earned many awards including 50-Miler, Philmont, Duty to God, National Camping 100 nights, National Honor Patrol, and several others. In 2012 Tim did 22 nights of camping and 141 backpacking/hiking miles! 

Chas Wilken – Chas is 15 years old, in 10th grade, and he earned his Eagle Scout and a Bronze Palm in 2012. He is an active Brotherhood member in the OA and has been serving at the Ohlone Lodge Treasurer. Chas was the Scout-in-charge for PSC Historic Camps Trail, Castle Rock, Zomb-o-ree, Castle Rock / Big Basin, Sunol to Del Valle, and was the Crew Leader for his Philmont Trek in 2012. In 2012 he earned many awards including 50-Miler, Philmont, Duty to God, National Camping 100 nights, National Honor Patrol, and several others. Chas completed several training courses last year including ILST, Kodiak Challenge, and NAYLE. In 2012 Chas did 36 nights of camping and 162 backpacking/hiking miles! 

Brian Wipfler – Brian is 17 years old, in 12th grade, and he earned his Eagle Scout and a Bronze Palm in 2012. He is an active OA Ordeal member. Brian is most known for his service as the Junior Assistant Scoutmaster in charge of the Troop Guides for our first year program this past year. Brian has done a great job of working with the Troop Guides and first year Scout on their Trail to First Class. Brian has two 50-Miler awards (Colorado and Philmont) from previous years.

Please join me in congratulating these scouts on receiving the Scout of the Year awards!
