Local Boy Scout volunteers were honored recently for their service at the Camino Real District recognition dinner held in San Luis Obispo. Over 70 scouts and scouters were on hand to thank those “who have been of exemplary service to the scouting youth in our area.”
The “District Award of Merit” — the highest award that a Scout District can present to a local volunteer leader — was given to Nate Maas and Jarret Prichard. Maas was a long time scoutmaster of Troop 308 and Prichard was cub master of Pack 13 and is now scoutmaster of Troop 489.
Other award winners were: Jessica Lorance (Woodbadge Beads and Rookie Leader of the Year); Tamie Johns (Volunteer of the Year); Austin Werland (Boy Scout of the Year); Lucas Alley (Rookie Boy Scout of the Year); Kevin Farage and Brian Hall (Boy Scout Leaders of the Year); Ian Campbell (Rookie Cub master of the Year); and Rubin Ruiz (Committee Member of the Year).
