The Del-Mar-Va Council, Boy Scouts of America, will hold its annual Sussex County Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner on Thursday, November 2nd at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville DE. This year the Boy Scouts will honor Sussex County Council President, Michael Vincent.

Michael H. Vincent serves as the 1st district councilman on the five-member Sussex County Council, representing portions of western Sussex County, including the Bethel, Blades, Bridgeville, Laurel and Seaford areas. Since his election to County government in 2008, Mr. Vincent has served as vice president and is the current president of the County Council. A native of Seaford, Mr. Vincent is a former Seaford City Council member, as well as a past chief, past president and lifetime member of the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department, and a one-time president of the Delaware Volunteer Firefighters Association. Mr. Vincent owns a small business, Vincent Fire Equipment, which supplies volunteer fire companies throughout Delaware with the essential, life-saving tools the fire service – and public – depend on. Mr. Vincent considers public safety, land use and fostering economic development opportunities among his top priorities. Mr. Vincent and his wife, Elaine, live in Seaford and are the parents of a grown daughter and grandparents to three grandchildren.

Recipients are selected for their outstanding service as evidenced by their leadership to many worthwhile organizations, as well as the respect and esteem in which they are held by their colleagues. The Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner is the annual opportunity for the community’s leadership to gather and celebrate the successes of the Boy Scouting program in our area. The dinner is built around recognizing a person or persons who use the character traits taught in Scouting to make our community a better place.

The event expects to have 150 attendees to recognize Mike for his service. The dinner will raised over $30,000 to help support scouting programs and services. Over 10,000 youth are served by the Del-Mar-Va Council, Boy Scouts of America annually. Special efforts are made to reach urban, rural, minority, special needs and underprivileged youths, who will benefit most from Scouting’s values-based programs.
