District Attorney John DeRosier recently received the Silver Beaver Award from the Calcasieu Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.
The Silver Beaver Award, created in 1931, is awarded by the Council Executive Board for outstanding service to youth within the Council or for outstanding longtime service to youth by a registered Scouter within the Council.
DeRosier is very supportive of the Calcasieu Area Council. He has partnered with the Council to raise funds for the past several years, including helping with the John DeRosier "On My Honor" BSA Classic Golf Tournament. The tournament has generated over $50,000 in revenue.
DeRosier is one of five recipients this year chosen by the Council.
