Jack J. Sophir Awards

Jack J. Sophir Arrowman of the Year Award

Jack J. Sophir Arrowman of the Year Award is given to Arrowmen who have performed outstanding service to Pathfinder Chapter. Nominate Scouts and Scouters who you believe have given distinguished service directly to the Pathfinder Chapter for at least two years. To nominate someone download the nomination form for the Jack J. Sophir Arrowman of the Year Award.

Jack J. Sophir Lifetime Achievement Award

Pathfinder Chapter also has a Jack J. Sophir Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is given to Scouters who are believed to have given a lifetime (minimum of ten years) of achievement and participation in the Order of the Arrow. The nominee must previously have received the Pathfinder Jack J. Sophir Arrowman of the Year Award. Nominate someone by downloading nomination form for the Jack J. Sophir Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

Jack J. Sophir Arrowman of the Year and Jack J. Sophir Lifetime Achievement Awards are presented each year at the Chapter Fellowship Banquet in February. If you believe someone is worthy of either award, nominate that person; do not expect someone else to do it, as they may go unrecognized.

 

See below for past recipients of the Jack J. Sophir Arrowman of the Year and Jack J. Sophir Lifetime Achievement Awards.

 

Pathfinder Chapter is looking for your Scouting Resumes.  Resumes are used to help Arrowmen nominate fellow Arrowmen for these awards and for the Vigil Honor, providing information that may be required on each nomination form. Fill one out today and mail it to our Chapter Advisor, Nicole Bopp, to aid in the application process.
