VANCOUVER — Jennifer Hohn was one of several youth mentors of the Cascade Pacific Council of Boy Scouts of America to be presented with the prestigious Silver Beaver volunteerism award on May 1 at a special recognition ceremony.
Hohn is an assistant scoutmaster for Troop 554 in Vancouver. She has been a parishioner at St. Joseph Catholic Church for 24 years and has served in several ministries in that time. She began her role as an adult Scouter in 2014 as treasurer for Troop 648 before moving on to serve Troop 554 as outdoor activities chair and later as assistant scoutmaster.
Hohn is known widely for her service and contributions at the district and council level. She has served as a rangemaster for Cub Scout day camps and as a committee member for several Camporees. In 2019, she co-chaired the Columbia River Camporee during the merging of two districts and worked to ensure the program was a success. In 2018, she stepped up as a dean for University of Scouting and in 2021 took on the role of chancellor. “Her dedication to Scouting has helped hundreds of Scouters receive training to become better leaders,” an announcement about the award said.
Jennifer has been recognized for her service to her district in several capacities; her awards include the District Award of Merit for Columbia River District, the Spirit Lake District Distinguished Scouter award and Columbia Gorge District Scouter of the Year. She is a Vigil member of the Order of the Arrow. She is known for her craftsmanship and attention to detail and is a benefit to any team she chooses to champion.
