President George W. Bush and Boy Scout Donald Cunningham Shaking Hands – Report to the Nation

Our next Centurion recipient is Don Cunningham, for his service as an officer of Susquehannock Lodge, Section NE-4C and National OA from 1998 to 2001.

In early 1998 when Don Cunningham moved from Ames, Iowa to Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, he quickly researched the area and found that he lived in the Keystone Area Council’s Jurisdiction and joined a troop close to his new house. As a very active member of his old lodge, he quickly transferred in Susquehannock Lodge.
He was a very enthusiastic ceremonialist in his old lodge and it did not take long for him to join our ceremony team, kind of taking the bull by the horns, with our very young team and whipping them into shape to compete at the upcoming NOAC at the end of July. After that he became very active on our lodge executive committee serving in the position of 1st Vice Chief for 2 Terms. He then served as Section Vice Chief in 1999 to 2000 and Section Chief in 2000. He also served as conclave chairman in 2000 and various other jobs continuing his cheerful service. In 2001 he served as National Chief of the Order of the Arrow. He is a recipient of the Founders Award and the Distinguished Service Award.
Don was an exceptional youth leader in the Order of the Arrow. He exhibited maturity that was beyond his years. He was respected by both youth and adult members of the order. He was also a great promoter of Order of the Arrow. His outgoing personality was well matched to the many leadership positions he held.
