Outstanding Eagle Scout Award
More than 50 Eagle Scouts from the Narragansett Council, Boy Scouts of America joined Governor Lincoln D. Chafee at the Rhode Island State House on Sept. 25 for the “Gathering of Eagle Scouts.” The event hosted by the governor recognized all Eagle Scouts who have received awards in the history of the council, with an emphasis on those who received awards in 2012-2013. Chafee presented the Narragansett Council with a citation for “providing over 100 years of exemplary service in training and encouraging and inspiring the future leaders of our community.” Narragansett Council Scout Executive/CEO John H. Mosby presented George W. Shuster with the National Eagle Scout Association Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA). This prestigious recognition is awarded to those who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state or regional level. Shuster is a Yale Law School graduate and a Navy veteran. He joined Cranston Print Works in 1978 and is now the chairman. He serves on a number of community boards and is currently the president of the Board for the Narragansett Council. During the event, Mosby said, “It is because of his outstanding achievements, not only in Scouting, but in the community as a whole that we are proud to present George with the Outstanding Eagle Scout Award.” Shuster, holding his award, is pictured on the steps of the State House Rotunda with others who participated in the ceremony.
