The Good Scout Award is bestowed upon individuals who have demonstrated integrity and genuine concern for others in both their professional and personal lives. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson both serve on a variety of boards and committees, and they are each involved in organizing many community events. Mr. Johnson, a lifelong resident of Westborough and member of the Board of Selectmen, has served on the town Finance Committee. He is very involved in Scouting and serves as a member of the Good Scout Committee. Mrs. Johnson, President of the Westborough Education Foundation, Treasurer of the Westborough Cultural Council and co-chair Arts In Common, President of the Public Westborough Library foundation, chairs the Annual Trivia Bee and co-chairs the Turkey Trot, popular Westborough events. She was recently named a 2020 Commonwealth Heroine. The recipients need not have been Scouts but must carry the “Spirit of Scouting” into their adult lives. They are people who have been unselfish in their service to others on an individual and community basis. They seek no return for their service other than the satisfaction of aiding their fellow citizens, their community, and their nation. The Good Scouts are people who truly capture the respect and imagination of our youth. – Boy Scouts of America Mayflower Council
