Boy Scouts Announce Distinguished Citizen of the Year Award

By Emily Girsch.
The Boy Scouts today announced the winner of the 2016 Broome County Distinguished Citizen Award.

Jeff Coghlan was selected as the recipient for his achievements and service to the community.

A longtime Boy Scout and leader in his community, Coghlan said he's honored to be among the winners of this award.

"Previous recipients are really pillars in our community," said recipient of the award, Jeff Coghlan.

"People that I've known almost since the day I moved here, people who have mentored me, people who have supported the community and made incredible contributions to the community so to be part of that group is strange but also a tremendous honor."

The event also showcased the positive benefits the Boy Scouts contribute to Broome County and to leadership in today's youth.
