2019 Silver Comet District Conductor Award Nominations

Posted on Jan 11 2020 - 11:25pm

The Silver Comet District Conductor Award is for any adult in your unit that you feel deserves recognition for service to scouting that goes “above and beyond”. They might be the Assistant Leader that is always there when help is needed, the Committee Member that somehow keeps the accounts straight, or maybe that parent that keeps everything organized and moving forward. They do not have to be a registered Scouter to be nominated for this award. The Conductor Awards are announced at our District Banquet, which will be held on March 12th, 2020 at McEachern United Methodist Church.

Nominations should be submitted on the Silver Comet Conductor Award nomination form by February 29th, 2020 to our Conductor Award Coordinator, Clint Pope, at: conductor@silvercometdistrictbsa.org.

Or mail to: Clint Pope, 2856 Summit Ridge Dr., Marietta, GA 30066.

One nomination per 25 registered youth in your Unit.

(1-25 registered Youth=1 nomination, 26-50=2 nominations, 51-75=3 nominations, etc.)

The list of previous honorees is available here at the bottom of the page.

Last weekend a dedicated group of Silver Comet Scouts and Scouters helped over 80 mothers and their sons set up camp sites and engage in fun outdoor activities at the City of Acworth Annual Mother/Son Campout. What a wonderful, community-focused way to show Scout service and spirit! Thank you to the Scouts and parents of Troop 116: Alex Coogler, Noah Coogler (Second Class Scout), Lauren Schwartz, Luke Schwartz (Tenderfoot Scout), Susan Rodgers, and John Rodgers (Tenderfoot Scout); and the Eagle Scouts and Leaders of Troop 350: Conner Kautz, Evan Kautz, Andrew Helbling, and Gary Roberts. Thank you to Steve Helbling and Jeff Starnes for organizing the district's annual support of this community event. Thank you also to Chris Skibbie, a member of the community who overheard Scout Leaders discussing the event and came out to volunteer.
