Declan B. O’Leary
Declan O’Leary has cheerfully served his troop, chapter and the council training program. In this position, he tirelessly went above and beyond in cheerful service to his chapter as its First Vice Chief. Declan’s work revitalized the chapter’s service project program. In addition to his role as a chapter officer, Declan has served the Lodge and his Chapter in various Chairman roles. When not giving back to the OA, Declan spends his time building leaders as a member of the Council’s National Youth Leadership Training Staff. Declan can also be found helping his district’s camping program. Declan is a mentor for many of his fellow Scouts. For his constant service to his chapter and society, we energetically nominate Declan B. O’Leary for the Vigil Honor.
