LAURINBURG — Guy McCook was recently honored with the nomination and receipt of the Silver Beaver Award by the Cape Fear Council of the Boy Scouts of America.


According to the council, the Silver Beaver Award is the highest honor the council may bestow upon a volunteer and is awarded to those “who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council.”


McCook has been a member of the Executive Board of the Cape Fear Council for the past 18 years. He was the Pacesetter Division Chairman for Scotland County in the 1995 Camp Development Campaign, which raised the money to build the McNeill Club Scout World. He has also led the Scotland County Investment in Character Campaign two different years.


One of his greatest contributions to the council has been in serving as chairman of The Pete Hasty Memorial Golf Tournament for the past 27 years. This tournament is held annually to honor the memory of Pete Hasty, McCook’s father-in-law who served as president of the Cape Fear Council in 1974-1975. The tournament has returned over $130,000 to the scouting program.
