Each year, the French Creek Council of the Boy Scouts of America honors local residents for outstanding leadership in community endeavors that contribute to the vitality of Mercer County and Brookfield Ohio. Recent recipients include Attorney James Epstein, William Perrine, Jerry Nighswander, Clifford Hovis, Dale Deist, Senator Bob Robbins, Pastor Larry Haynes, Will Knecht, John T. “Chip” Mastrian, Doug Thomas and the Winner Family. These recipients and others like them have all helped to make our area a better place to live, work and play.
This year’s honorees are especially deserving of the award, which also recognizes leadership in preparing today’s youth for tomorrow’s challenges. The 2015 Distinguished Citizen Awards will be presented to J. Bradley McGonigle III and Bruce A. McQuiston at a dinner to be held in their honor. The event is slated for Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at the Corinthian Banquet & Event Center, 47 Vine Avenue, Sharon, PA. 16146.
