Our own Jim Root is among this year’s recipients of the Bronze Pelican Award by the Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese of Orange. The Bronze Pelican is a diocesan recognition given to adults who have made a significant and outstanding contribution to the spiritual development of Catholic youth in the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of the award must be exemplary adults and members in good standing in their respective positions in Scouting and in their faith communities.
Jim was awarded this distinguishing honor on Sunday, December 12, 2010, at the Marywood Center Chapel, by Auxiliary Bishop of Orange, Dominic Luong. Congratulations Jim!
