Last Saturday, ClassB’s Vice President, Gregg Hilferding, received the Silver Beaver Award from the Boy Scouts of America’s Gulf Ridge Council. The Silver Beaver is the highest recognition a council can present to an adult volunteer.
Many of you know Gregg because of the work he does with Scouting through ClassB. Outside of work, Gregg dedicates a great deal of his personal time to Scouting as a council volunteer. He has been the Gulf Ridge Council Advancement Chair since September 2010 and is a lifetime member of the National Eagle Scout Association. Gregg is also a member of the Boy Scouts of America National Speaker Bank and regularly speaks to community organizations about Scouting.
From his young start as a Tiger Cub to becoming an Eagle Scout, Gregg has literally grown up in the Scouting program. He is an ordeal member of the Order of the Arrow and has attended both World and National Jamborees as a camper and staff member. Gregg has been an Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop Committee Chair, Troop Committee member, Scoutmaster and an advisor to a new Venturing Crew.
On behalf of everyone at ClassB, we’d like to sincerely congratulate Gregg on this well deserved recognition. He is an inspiration to us all!
