The Maui County Council, Boy Scouts of America will honor four individuals for their service and volunteerism at the organization’s upcoming Annual Dinner.

James Brent and Rick Miller will receive the Silver Beaver Award, which recognizes volunteers for consistent, dedicated service to the area’s youth.  The award was introduced in 1931 as the highest Scouting award given at the local council level.
