Legacy of Servant Leadership
Lifetime Achievement Award
The Legacy of Servant Leadership Lifetime Achievement Award was created by the
National Order of the Arrow Committee in 2002 to recognize the Order's second
and third generation "Founders" - Scouters who have built an enduring
legacy to Scouting and the Order of the Arrow through a lifetime of cheerful
service to others.
The award is intended to recognize only those extraordinary Arrowmen who have
deeply influenced and significantly contributed to the vision, direction, and
growth of the Order of the Arrow, faithfully demonstrated a lifetime of servant
leadership, and, through their daily example, illuminated and reinforced the
significance of the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
The prestige of the award requires the criteria be general in nature to allow
members of the National Committee to exercise wisdom, flexibility, and
discretion in the evaluation and selection of a worthy recipient. Although any
past or present member of the Order of the Arrow may be nominated, a nominee must
meet the following criteria:
Vigil Honor member;
National Distinguished Service Award (DSA) recipient;
Continued to render outstanding and dedicated service to the Order of the Arrow
on a sectional, regional, or national level, since receiving the DSA; and
Member of the Order of the Arrow for a minimum of 25 years.
Nominations are made using the Lifetime
Achievement Award Nomination Form, and must be received in the
national officeprior to October 31st of the year prior to a National
Order of the Arrow Conference ("NOAC").Nominations will be submitted
to members of the Recognition & Awards Subcommittee for evaluation and
recommendation to the National Committee. A nominee must be approved by 75% of
the members of National Committee to receive the award. The award will be
presented only at NOAC.
Given the nature and prestige of the award, it is recommended that no more than
one recipient be recognized at a NOAC. The award recipient will be notified
prior to the award ceremony. The award may not be presented posthumously.
In keeping with the nature of the award, the recognition is not to be a uniform
piece, pin, ribbon, or other device, but will be a significant recognition
suitable for display in the recipient's home or office.
