Contributions to the community donâ€™t go ignored.
Friday at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Keith Graumann will be recognized for his contribution to the community at the Good Scout Award Dinner. Following the reception, dinner will be served and the program will begin at 7 p.m. at the Big Spring Country Club.
â€śA committee looks at several different people who have made contributions to the community and this year they selected Dr. Graumann,â€ť Brian Sweeney, district executive of Big Spring Boy Scouts of America, said. â€śHe has gone over the top the whole time he has been in the community.â€ť
Dr. Graumann was raised and educated in Big Spring. He was involved in Boy Scouts for many years and earned his Eagle Scout rank in 1968. This year, he celebrated his 10th season with the Big Spring Symphony Orchestra and Chorus as director and conductor. Through his career, he received his bachelor of music education, master of music theory and composition and doctorate of musical arts degrees.
â€śA good scout award recognizes an outstanding citizen within a local community who helps make a difference by demonstrating the ideals of scout oath and law,â€ť Sweeney said.
For those wanting to attend, tickets can be purchased for $50 per person and will include the meal. For more information, contact Sweeney at 432-212-3577.
