Each year, Troop 48 chooses a Scout or Scouts as the recipient of the Walter Kowalewski III and Andrew Baldyga Memorial Award. Walt and Andrew were each Scouts with Troop 48, and each died very young, Walt of cancer and Andrew during an accident while climbing. They each embraced the best that the troop had to offer from the brotherhood to the adventures, from the successes to the failures. Each year, we honor both of these fallen scouts as best we can by each year linking their names to other scouts in Troop 48 that wake each day exhibiting a scouting spirit that we can all try to live up to.

This year’s recipient is Bryan “Skippy” G. Congrats Skippy.
