Kyle Memmott, advancement chairman for the Eagle Board of the Virgin River Valley BSA, received the Silver Beaver Award for his service to young men in the scouting program. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award given to volunteers in the scouting program by the BSA. As the chairman of the Eagle Board for 3 years, he and the committee interview scouts as they present their Eagle Project for approval and again when they complete the project as they return and report on the completed project.
He has served in the scouting program for 20 years serving as a chartered organization representative, Unit Commissioner, counselor at Camp Kolob for four years, and as scoutmaster and Varsity Coach for six years for Unit 2998 sponsored by the Mesquite 7th Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“Memmott has a unique ability to lead more by example than word. He is committed to the principles of scouting and demonstrated distinguished service by helping numerous scouts to understand and internalize principles of the Scout Law and Oath through service, scout advancement projects, camps and leadership,” as stated by fellow scouters who nominated him.
The Silver Beaver is given to those who implement the scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication and many years of service. Memmott is an Eagle Scout and earned his Duty to God Award, Scoutmaster Key as well as Second Miler and District Award of Merit.
