Jesse J. Moyer - 2018 Lenni Lenape District Award of Merit Recipient


The District Award of Merit is a council award presented by districts in the same manner that the Silver Beaver is a national award presented by councils. The award is available to Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level.

The basic REQUIREMENTS for this award are as follows:

  1. A nominee must be a registered Scouter.
  2. A nominee must have rendered noteworthy service to youth in Scouting, outside Scouting, or both. (Note: The nature and value of “noteworthy service to youth” may consist of a single plan or decisions that contributed vitally to the lives of large numbers of youth or it may have been given to a small group over an extended period of time.)
  3. Consideration must be given to the nominee’s Scouting position and the corresponding opportunity to render outstanding
    service beyond the expectations of that Scouting position.
  4. The nominee’s attitude toward and cooperation with the district and/or council is to be taken into consideration.
  5. Nominations cannot be considered for posthumous awards.

At the recent Volunteer Awards Dinner,
The Lenni-Lenape District of the Columbia-Montour Council presented the

2018 District Award of Merit to:

Jesse J. Moyer

Pack 33 and Troop 33, Danville
District Training Chairman

Jesse was born in Evansville, PA and is a 1999 graduate of the Columbia-Montour Area Vocational Technical School’s Machining Technology Program. As a Ram he was an avid wrestler, football player and served as a Class Officer.

After graduating, he held several industrial mechanic positions first at Williamsport Wirerope Works then Del-Monte Pet foods before joining PPL (now Talen Energy) as a Mechanic/Welder in 2007. He is currently a Nuclear Mechanical Journeyman at Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. He is also the Chairperson for the Cooper Bessemer Mechanical Maintenance Sub-Committee for emergency diesel engines industry wide and is responsible for the development of mechanical guidelines.

Our honoree has a long Scouting history, spanning 20+ years, starting as a Tiger Cub with Pack 88. He was a member of Pack 88, and 22 before crossing over to Boy Scouts a member of Troop 88, 12 and 18. Additionally he was an Assistant Junior Scoutmaster for Troop 22.

As an active scout, he completed several 50 milers both afoot and afloat and was privileged to attend the National Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia in 1993. He went on to follow in the footsteps of his two older brothers on the Trail to Eagle, opting to use all but 8 days of his first 18 years on Earth to earn Eagle.  He was Eagle Class of 1998 Class Representative.

He is a member of the Order of the Arrow, Wyona Lodge 18 receiving his Ordeal in 1994 and going on to earn Brotherhood in 2015.  During his youth years, he was an active member of the dance team with one of his fondest memories being that of the 1996 Conclave dance competition.

Our honoree has devoted the last several years to Scouting as an adult volunteer. His “hour a week”, started when his oldest son joined Cub Scouts, serving as Den Leader, Assistant Cubmaster and Cubmaster for Pack 33. In 2015, he was honored as Cubmaster of the Year and has led his Pack to achieving the J.F. Lavigne Honor Unit Award every year since its inception.

When that young Cub Scout crossed the bridge into Boy Scouts, so did Dad, expanding his service to Assistant Scoutmaster then Scoutmaster for Troop 33.  He is also a proud beaver, completing his Wood Badge in 2016.

His scouting service doesn’t stop at the local unit level. He currently serves as the District Training Chair. He also runs the annual Council Scout Olympics and Movie Night.

Outside of Scouting, our honoree has been an AYSO coach, and youth wrestling coach. He enjoys anything outside, anything with an engine, and is an avid weightlifter.

He lives in Danville with his wife Kirsten to whom he has been happily married to for 19 years and are the parents to 4 young men and a young lady. Their sons are well along their way on the Trail to Eagle: Kaleb Moyer, Life Scout and Senior Patrol Leader for Troop 33; Brady Moyer, First Class and Assistant Senior Patrol Leader for Troop 33; Noah Moyer Second Class, Troop 33; Chase Moyer Arrow of Light, Pack 33.
