Scott Wilson has received the Silver Beaver Award from the Greater St. Louis Area Council – Boy Scouts of America in recognition of his extensive volunteer service to the organization. For the past five years, Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of S. M. Wilson & Co., has chaired the Scouts’ annual Pinewood Derby, a racing event that raises money and awareness for the Greater St. Louis Area Council.

It is the highest recognition a Boy Scout council can bestow on an adult volunteer, and only a handful of recipients are selected each year from a pool of nearly 16,000 volunteers in the Greater St. Louis Area Council.
Scott and other 2017 Silver Beaver Award recipients were honored at the Council Annual Recognition Dinner on June 7 at the Gateway Center.
