Upon nomination by their local Scout council and with the approval of the National Court of Honor, recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service.
Bryan was born in the UK where he first lived for 50 years and where he had been a Scout leader for 30 years. After those years he settled in the USA and volunteered for different jobs in Scouting and moved to different places like Brooklyn - New York, Atlanta – Georgia and Columbus, Ohio.
