The James E. West Fellowship Award is a recognition authorized by the National Council, B.S.A. and presented on behalf of Mitigwa Lodge to the Mid-Iowa Council with a donation of $1,000 in the recipients name. The award is named after the first Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America who exemplified Ralph Waldo Emerson’s observation that “an institution is the lengthened shadow of one man.”
Each James E. West Fellow is recognized with a personalized certificate, a lapel pin and the James E. West square knot to wear on the official Boy Scouts of America uniform. While it is a national recognition, the James E. West Fellowship Award is authorized and presented by the local council.
