Trailblazer Reception

Nominations Sought for Young Professionals Award Program

The Boy Scouts of America, Westmoreland Fayette Council is pleased to announce the fourth year of its “Trailblazers” awards program for emerging community leaders.

“The Scout Law has stood the test of time as a practical guide to be a person of character and a leader,” Martin Barbie, Westmoreland Fayette Council Scout Executive/CEO, said. “We want to celebrate those people in our community who inspire us by being great examples of living the Scout Law. These awards are our way of saying thank you and encouraging them to continue to hold themselves to high standards.”

Nominees need not be involved currently in Scouting, may be male or female, and must be active members of a Westmoreland County Community who will be no older than age 40 as of May 31. 

“The most important qualification for this award is that these young professionals can truly be considered role models for the young people we serve,” Barbie said.

Beginning now and continuing through March 31, the nomination process can be completed below. Nominees should personify one or more points of the Scout Law: trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

Awards will be presented at the 2020 Trailblazer reception to be held at Greensburg Garden and Civic Center during the evening of April 23, 2020. 

Sponsorships, tickets and nominations are available online or can be obtained by contacting the Boy Scouts of America at 724-837-1630.
