Roy M. Hinshaw Memorial Award

Hinshaw Award

The Roy M. Hinshaw Memorial Award is presented in memory of Mr. Roy Milton Hinshaw of Winston-Salem, who was a longtime Boy Scout volunteer with experience in all aspects of the organization’s operation.

One of his Scouting “jobs” was to collect documents and memorabilia that concerned the Old Hickory Council.  His personal collection is the basis of the Historical Association’s collection, which is housed in the Raven Knob Boy Scout Museum at Camp Raven Knob.  His collection inspired the actual creation of the Historical Association in 1994.

Up to three awards are presented annually to nominees who have demonstrated exceptional service, usually during the past calendar year, in preserving Scouting’s history. The recipient(s) need not be a registered Scout or Scouter or a member of the Association.
