COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The 38th annual Boy Scouts award dinner was held Tuesday at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center.

The Chattahoochee Council offers a program for boys and men ages 6 to 21, serving over 5,000 youth throughout 15 counties in West Central Georgia and East Central Alabama. Proceeds from Columbus Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner go to the local Boy Scouts program.

“All of the funds stay here. A lot of people think that the money raised goes to the National Boy Scouts of America Committee, but it does not. It all stays locally. It helps us provide programs for the scouts,” said Tobert Mckenna, the president of the Boys Scouts of America Council.

Philip W. Tomlinson, past CEO of TSYS, was recognized at this year’s dinner and received the Distinguished Citizens Award. Thomlinson worked for TSYS for 40 years prior to retiring in 2014.  

The Boy Scouts of America instills a strong sense of responsibility and character in today’s youth and encourages them to become leaders in their communities.
