​Silver Beaver Awards will be presented at the council's Annual Meeting & Recognition Dinner on June 14.

The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award a local council can present to an adult volunteer of the Boy Scouts of America. The award is presented to those volunteers who have made outstanding contributions to the Scouting program. Nominations are recommended by the local council and approved by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

     Eagle Scout Mike Ukman’s devotion and enthusiasm for the Scouting program is an example for other adult volunteer leaders to follow.
     He was a Tiger Cub leader, den leader, Webelos Leader and Cubmaster at Pack 621 and an assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 783, chartered to Salem Methodist Church. He attended summer camp for 17 years, including a week assisting Troop 109, chartered to the Missouri School for the Blind. He mentored and influenced countless Eagle Scouts, taking special care to make sure each candidate understands their leadership responsibilities.
     He completed Wood Badge training and served on more than a dozen Cub Scout Leader Pow Wow and University of Scouting staffs. He was a member of 22 camporee staffs, seven Klondike Derby staffs and is a member of the New Horizons District camping committee. He is a unit commissioner and serves on the district Eagle Board of Review. He supports the efforts of the district Venturing Officers Association and helped with many Fall Fun Rally weekends.
     Outside of Scouting, he worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes, volunteered to help the D.A.R.E program at his sons’ school, and coached t-ball and baseball teams.
     He received his district’s Award of Merit and numerous training awards. He is the father of two Eagle Scouts.
