Centurion Award Recipients

oa-centennial-totemFor nearly 100 years, the Order of the Arrow has purposefully recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. Therefore, our organization’s centennial provides a unique opportunity to commemorate those among us who are exemplars of the “high ideals and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.” The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who havemeaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing, and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps.

This award is a one-time recognition associated with the centennial anniversary of the OA that is bestowed by the national Order of the Arrow committee. It is modeled after a similar program in the BSA’s 100th anniversary celebration, the 2010 National Hall of Leadership. Accordingly, this recognition is an opportunity to highlight lodge development over the last century and the many individuals, both youth and adult, who were instrumental to this success. These honorees will serve as exemplars of leadership, modeling to others a commitment to cheerful service as the Order of the Arrow enters its second century.

Wenasa Quenhotan Lodge 23 is proud to honor the following recipients with the Centurion Award. These individuals have held unique roles within our lodge's history and have inspired many others along the way. Their service to Scouting and the Order of the Arrow continues to serve as an example to their brothers.

What is ArrowTour? A delegation of youth Arrowmen will be spending next summer traveling to council camps and Scouting events, in order to bring a once-in-a-lifetime experience to Scouts, Arrowmen, and communities around the country. ArrowTour will include opportunities to reflect, connect, and discover the Order’s Centuries of Service, both past and present. A sample of the programs being offered:

  • Exploration: History displays, interactive timelines, and program videos
