Tribute: Herb Pitts $6,000 post-secondary scholarship awarded to a Scouting youth.
In addition to 44 years of uniformed service, including serving with distinction overseas and receiving the Military Cross, Major General Herb C. Pitts dedicated much of his life to Scouts Canada. Herb’s significant contribution to our organization has influenced youth in communities within Tri-Shore Council, across the country in his role as National Commissioner and abroad as International Commissioner.
Honouring the considerable impact he had on youth in Scouting, Herb was awarded the Silver Wolf & Medal of Merit. Passing away in 2018, Mr. Pitts will forever be remembered as a true role model.
In 2019, the Scouts Canada Foundation approved the naming of one of our scholarships in his memory. This award, the Herb Pitts Memorial Scholarship, is to honour the long-standing support of youth leadership, loyalty and involvement that Mr. Pitts held in Scouting.
Major General Herb C. Pitts continues to shine a light on our Scouting youth. We are honoured to carry on his legacy through our Scholarship Program so that youth in Canada are given an opportunity to explore their academic interests and achieve future success. We thank him for his dedication and service to the Scouting movement.
A Thank-You to Ann Marie Sweeney, CEO of the Sweeney Foundation
Ann Marie Sweeney, B.A. LL.B wanted to fund a program for older youth that focuses on their needs at two key crossroads in their lives: finding their post-secondary educational path and navigating their route from school to work.
With Mrs. Sweeney’s generous gift, Scouts Canada developed the The Pathways to Your Future Program that will launch in 2019-20. This special initiative will offer 100 participants career counselling, skills development and mentorship as they complete their individual, youth-proposed and youth-led Scouting project.
