BSA to honor Flowers
On December 9, the Chickasaw Council, Boy Scouts of America, will present the 2010 Distinguished Citizen Award to the Richard B. Flowers family of Tunica and Clarksdale.
The award was established by the Boy Scouts of America to recognize noteworthy and extraordinary leadership of citizens in communities across the United States. Organizers say that honoring distinguished citizenship delivers a message to our youth that character counts. The lives of distinguished citizens put into place guideposts that serve to inspire our youth to lead, to accept responsibility, and to care about principles and causes beyond self-interest.
This award has been given to four other Delta families, the S.E. Kossman Family of Cleveland, the M.P. Sturdivant Family of Glendora, the A.T. Janoush family of Cleveland, and the Jesse Brent family of Greenville.
The dinner will be held at the Clarksdale Country Club, with the reception at 6pm and the dinner at 7 pm. Dr. Mark Keenum, President of Mississippi State University will be the keynote speaker for the evening and will pay a special tribute to the family. The Flowers Family has a very strong scouting history. Mr. and Mrs. Flowers were very involved in Scouting as leaders and parents. Bowen Flowers and Mattson Flowers, both earned their Eagle Scout awards. Campbell Flowers Melton’s sons, Joseph and Garland are both Life Scouts in Troop 16 in Tunica.
