Character Awards

11th Anniversary Character Awards Dinner
Honoring Community Leaders


Congratulations to our 2016 Character Award honorees:

Dan Bozzuto* Andy Ratermann * Emily Ruvalcaba * Ernie Yamane * Fernando Zazueta

We were honored to recognize our five honorees this past April, with the 2016 Character Award!  They were selected by our former Character Award recipients because of their impact made in the community, which personifies what Scouting stands for – good citizenship and service to others.

The awards dinner took place on Thursday, April 21st at the Rotary Summit Center in downtown San Jose.

Funds raised help support our Outreach Programs, including Learning for Life – an in-school and after-school program that teaches character education and life skills to boys and girls throughout the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council.

We look forward to honoring another deserving group of individuals in 2017!
