The Tuscarora Council of the Boy Scouts of America has announced that it will present its annual Distinguished Service Award to George Jeffreys.

The presentation will be made at a banquet June 5 at the Walnut Creek Country Club.

The recipient of the award is recognized for noteworthy and extraordinary leadership to the Scouts and the community and is chosen by a committee of past recipients.

Jeffreys, a co-owner of R.A. Jeffreys Distributing Co., has served the community in a wide variety of capacities and is known as an entrepreneur, executive and business innovator as well as a strong supporter of programs to benefit youth.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the council's programs.

The Tuscarora Council serves about 8,000 boys and adult volunteers in Duplin, Johnston, Sampson and Wayne counties.
