Boy Scouts Honor Superintendent


The Boy Scouts of America Seneca District of Laurel Highlands honored Superintendent Dr. Brian Miller on May 12, 2015 during a special breakfast at the AW Beattie Career Center in Allison Park. They awarded him with this year’s Good Citizen's Award.
 
Executive Director Clay Shumway, of the Boy Scouts of America Seneca District, said the awards program is designed to recognize those individuals who have consistently served youth in one of the communities in the North Hills for a period of years.  Recognized service can be through academics, athletics, religious activities, and/or Scouting.  
 
"The committee selected Dr. Miller based on his outstanding commitment to both North Allegheny and Pine-Richland school districts, as well as service through his church," said Mr. Shumway.
 
Dr. Miller said it has been a pleasure working in education and a profession that gives him the opportunity to work with students.
 
In addition, the scouts honored Ric Williams for his service to scouting. Other highlights during the program included North Allegheny sophomore scout Cole Baker, who spoke about what being an Eagle Scout meant to him. PRMS eighth graders Ryan Farbacher and Raymond Gonzalez shared their Eagle Scout project through a special display and video prior to the awards program.
 
In addition to Ryan and Raymond, PRHS Juniors Joseph Wieder and Benjamin Harris participated in the opening ceremonies of the program.  Keynote speaker was Representative Keith Rothfus.
