Centurion Award

Since 1915, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has purposefully recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and LawExternal Link in their daily lives.  Therefore, our organization’s centennial provided a unique opportunity to commemorate those among us who are exemplars of the “high ideals and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.”  The Centurion AwardExternal Link aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or those Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, have or will have inspired others to follow in their footsteps.

The Centurion Award was a one-time recognition associated with the 2015 centennial anniversary of the OA that was bestowed by the national Order of the Arrow committee.  It was modeled after a similar program in the BSA’s 100th anniversary celebration, the 2010 National Hall of Leadership.  Accordingly, this recognition was an opportunity to highlight lodge development over the last century and the many individuals, both youth and adult, who were instrumental to this success.  Centurion Award honorees will serve as exemplars of leadership, modeling to others a commitment to cheerful service as the Order of the Arrow enters its second century of service.

Centurion Award recipients may be living or deceased and should have provided significant contributions to the lodge’s legacy.  Each recipient was designated as either a youth or adult contributor.  The minimum service period was three years for a youth contributor or six years for an adult contributor.  Recipients of the award were presented with a certificate, a recognition ribbon consisting of a red and white ribbon, and a metallic totem symbolizing the centennial anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.

1,897 Arrowmen received the Centurion Award during the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference, including five Arrowmen from Ktemaque Lodge #15.  Please join us in congratulating Alexander Blitstein, Robert J. Carlson, Robert E. Fenty, Jr., Jess A. Hurwitz, and Matthew J. Mann and thanking them for their exemplary leadership and commitment to cheerful service.
