Vigil Honor Recipients

Vigil Honor Recipients

The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can bestow upon its members for service to their lodge, council, and Scouting. The Vigil Honor was established in 1915 when OA Founder, E. Urner Goodman received the first Vigil Honor.

The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition. It is reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office. The Vigil Honor cannot be won by a person’s conscious endeavor. It comes as recognition of unselfish leadership in service.
