Marc Johnson, Distinguished Eagle Scout Award
Marc Johnson, president of the University of Nevada, Reno, was presented the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award by the Boy Scouts of America’s Nevada Area Council.
Johnson was honored at a ceremony on the UNR campus on Oct. 26.
The Distinguished Eagle Scout Award is awarded to Eagle Scouts who, after 25 years, have distinguished themselves in their life work and who have shared their talents with their communities on a voluntary basis. Only 5 percent of all Boy Scouts achieve Scouting’s top rank of Eagle Scout.
The commission is a seven-member body that meets quarterly to make recommendations to the governor and lawmakers on Nevada’s mineral policy and to adopt regulations to carry out the duties and policies of the Division of Minerals.
