The San Diego-Imperial Council, Boy Scouts of America (SDIC) will pay tribute to civic leader Jerry Sanders at its annual Champions of Scouting Celebration.
For more than five decades, Sanders has stepped up to make San Diego a better place for everyone as the city’s chief of police, mayor, and leader of several local organizations, including the United Way and, most recently, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce.
“Jerry Sanders has done as much for San Diego as anyone,” says Sean Roy, SDIC Director. “From making San Diego safer, to building stronger families and communities, to mentoring the next generation of leaders, to expanding opportunities for business, Jerry has made a profound impact on our entire region.”
The annual SDIC Champions of Scouting event honors San Diego community leaders who recognize and support the positive impacts resulting from its youth leadership and community service programs.
