I mentioned this in a blurb last week, but it really deserves its own post. Lifelong Southborough resident John Wilson was recently honored for his community leadership by the Southborough Boy Scouts. From the press release:
Former Southborough Town Moderator and American Legion Post Commander Lieutenant Colonel John H. Wilson was chosen by the Boy Scouts of America’s Knox Trail Council, the Southborough’s Scouting leadership and the Southborough business community as Southborough’s 1st recipient of the Good Scout Award for 2010. He will be honored at an awards banquet in November which will culminate the yearlong celebration of the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouting in America. The 2010 town nominees were – Jane Smith, Peter Phaneuf, Marty Healy, Bea Ginga, David Falconi, Billy DePietri, Roger Challen and, of course, John Wilson.
Dennis Flynn, Southborough’s Scouting Charter Rep and Co-Chair of the Nominating Committee and the event said: “John Wilson was chosen from a highly select group of Southborough nominees as an example of outstanding commitment to community, country, family and friends, and as an individual who carried the “Spirit of Scouting” into his adult life. The Good Scout honoree is an outstanding community leader who captures the respect, admiration, and imagination of the youth in the community.”
