Eno River District Awards

Each year the Eno River District takes nominations for recognition of those Scouters in our units, and/or serving the Eno River District, who have gone above and beyond what one would normally expect of an adult leader or volunteer. 

The District Awards are presented at the annual District Awards Ceremony.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients!

JAMES L. WOMACK MEMORIAL SERVICE AWARD (adult and youth honorees)

Named in honor of a longtime Durham area Scouter, not more than one youth and one adult will be selected each year to receive this award.  Any Eno River District member, youth or adult, is invited and encouraged to recommend any other Eno River District member, youth or adult, for this award according to the following guidelines for nominations:

a) This is not an attendance award, a tenure award, an achievement, or something one can campaign for or actively seek;
b) this award is for distinctive service which has no specific requirements;
c) is more a way of life than a set of achievements;
d) quality of character that is not tangible, but is discernible is actions, words, and attitudes;
e) “and will endeavor so far as in my power lies to be unselfish in service and devotion to the welfare of others” will be the benchmark by which the awards committee will select those to receive this award; and
f) the Committee will give consideration to all aspects of the nominee’s activities–Scouting, community, church , and others.
