The Herb Pitts Memorial Scholarship
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-Shores 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 and 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 loyalty of Mr. Pitts to 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.
