Michael Huber, CEO and founder of Belfort Furniture in Sterling, has been awarded the 2017 Goose Creek District Good Scout Award.
Huber received the award during an Oct. 26 reception in his honor at another of his ventures, Stone Tower Winery south of Leesburg.
“The ‘Good Scout’ award honors outstanding leaders who exemplify the ideals of the Scout Oath and Law in their daily life,” said Kristina Bouweiri, president and CEO of Reston Limousine, chairman of this year’s event. “We are privileged to recognize a role model within the furniture retailing business and the Loudoun community.”
Good Scout Huber supports the good works of many area organizations including Every Citizen Has Opportunities, the Loudoun YMCA, the Loudoun Education Foundation, the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter, and the USO, among others.
The Good Scout Award recognizes a local leader for his or her contributions to the community and raises funds to support the Goose Creek District Boy Scouts. The Goose Creek District serves the 4,000 participants in the scouting program in Loudoun County.
Huber joins community leaders who have received the award since it was first bestowed in 1998, including Del. J. Randall Minchew (R-10), former schools superintendent Edgar Hatrick, former delegate Joe May, J. Hamilton Lambert of the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, Leonard “Hobie” Mitchell of Lansdowne Development Group, former Leesburg mayor Bob Sevila, Scott Hamberger of Fortessa Tableware Solutions, Jeff Browning of Browning Equipment, John Wood of Telos, and Bill Dean of M.C. Dean.
The Good Scout Award event is one of the Goose Creek District’s most significant fundraisers of the year, the proceeds of which support leadership and character development programs for young men and women in Loudoun.
