Distinguished Citizen Dinner

2015 Distinguished Citizen Honoree
Art Williams
President, Air Systems, Inc.


Art Williams was chosen among his peers to accept the 2015 Distinguished Citizen Award presented by the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council, Boy Scouts.

The Distinguished Citizen Dinner is our opportunity to honor leaders in our community that have consistent values with Scouting, while creating good news in a world where good news is not always spotlight.

Art was selected as our 2015 honoree by our former Distinguished Citizen honorees because of his impact made in our community, which personifies what Scouting stands for – good citizenship and service to others.  Art has been supportive of the Boy Scouts, serving as the council Board President from 2008-2010.  He currently serves on their Advisory Board and Boy Scout Memorial Foundation.  Art has also been involved in our local community for many years, including the San Jose Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, SMACNA Board Member, and Air Systems Foundation.

The Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council has honored many of the leading corporate and community leaders of Silicon Valley with the Distinguished Citizen Award.  This annual event raises awareness for Scouting as well as the necessary funds to serve over 13,000 youth in our community with lessons in character development, leadership and physical fitness.
