2023 BSA VISTA Leadership Megastars: Shaping Chester County’s Future with Character, Service, and Vision

BSA VISTA Leadership Megastars

CHESTER COUNTY, PABSA VISTA Leadership Megastars, an initiative that the Chester County Council, Boy Scouts of America launched in 2021 with VISTA Today, is ready to unveil its third class of honorees.

In partnership with VISTA Today, BSA VISTA Leadership Megastars was created in 2021 to recognize 12 Chester County leaders who are shaping the county’s future through their leadership as demonstrated by their character, service, vision, courage, passion, and humility.

Those who are selected to receive this honor embody the 12 Principles of the Scout Law — Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent — and therefore serve as an exemplary role model for young people.

After giving the public an opportunity to nominate individuals for BSA VISTA Leadership Megastars, the selection committee is excited to announce the 12 winners! Nominees were evaluated based on their:

  • leadership (public profile, reputation)
  • business success (financial results, career milestones)
  • community involvement (volunteer work, advocacy)
  • influence (impact on their community, company, industry, or on Chester County’s overall quality of place)

VISTA Today will soon publish the profiles of each BSA VISTA Leadership Megastar. The program will culminate with an awards reception on Wednesday, Sept. 20 hosted by the Chester County Council at its new Program, Activity, and Resource Campus (PARC) in Exton.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information, contact Kristin Conran at Kristin.Conran@scouting.org.
