Gary Callarman Recognized as Volunteer of the Year

Among those who were recognized Tuesday, by the Nonprofit Management Center and its annual Beacon Awards, was our very own Gary Callarman from the Comanche Trails District.

Gary Callarman has been a dedicated volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America for almost 30 years and has played several critical roles for the Buffalo Trail Council and his local units, Pack and Troop 1908.  Never one to avoid a challenge, Gary Callarman has become a key player in several of the improvements in our council policies and in our camping programs. For his dedication to this program and his standards of integrity, hard work, and persistence, it is no surprise that Gary Callarman is being recognized as Adult Volunteer of the Year.

The Beacon Awards are designed to honor excellence in Permian Basin nonprofit organizations by recognizing volunteers and staff of the local nonprofit sector. These prestigious awards are presented to Nonprofit Management Center Partner members and help sponsor these various partnering agencies by awarding $1,000 to the recipients organization.
